What impressed you positively?

"Even though the school was very small, the facilities really impressed me. There is a campus-wide wi-fi, and everything looked new and well kept. I guess those are the benefits of having a small, well-funded school. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The weather. It was so cold and I had to wait for a cab!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there were cabs parked outside the train station that I could have found right away, but I came out the wrong exit =(. Also, the school has an interesting block system, where you have 3 weeks of one class, take the final for it, then go on to the next one, in blocks, rather than having like 4 finals in one week as is traditional. It sounds like a really cool system." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was really cool. First you come in, sit down at a large table in the interview room with about 20 other interviewees. The dean comes in to talk about the school, certain financial aids, and asks everyone to introduce themselves. It's a nice icebreaker. After that, students are separated into groups of 3 for a tour with first or second year students. Then, you get pulled out to either the formal interview, the student interview, or the writing section. Somewhere between all of these, you have time to mingle in the main interview room with other students and faculty. It's important to note that you are being judged as you mingle with the faculty, I found out that it was actually a key part of the interview, so make sure you don't stand in the corner alone. Get in there and talk it up. That was pretty much it. It was a great interview, albeit very tiring to stay completely alert for 3 hours, which was how long the whole process took. I got my acceptance in the mail this morning (12/15). =D" Report Response
