What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING!!! The student tour was great, they answered questions honestly, and weren't just trying to sell the school. It made a great impression. Two students mentioned that the interview was really laidback, and my first thought was "yeah right, they're just saying that because they got in" but it really was the most impressive interview I went on...we just talked for about 30 minutes, no rapid firing of questions."
