What are your general comments?

"We had lunch with a 4th-year student and a faculty member, followed by a tour, then the interviews. One 15 minute interview with a 4th-year and one 30 minute interview with a faculty member. I really enjoyed the students, but the faculty member I interviewed with did not impress me at all. She was not welcoming at all, and I felt like she didn't want to be there. It left me with a bad taste in my mouth. The facilities are good and the atmosphere is obviously top-notch, but I wasn't as impressed as I was hoping to be. The are is not as bad as everyone says, and there is plenty of security around, so that really shouldn't affect a decision. Overall, I guess I just wasn't as impressed as I thought I was going to be." -Posted 11/10/2002 | Report Response
