What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing -- though I didn't stay for the tour. I've already spent a lot of time at the school (one of my best friends from college is a third year at P&S), so I didn't need the tour." -Posted 10/15/2003 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was very conversational and relaxed. Even with more difficult questions (ie Where do you see health care going?), I felt it was a dialogue rather than an interrogation; both of us discussed issues/gave opinions equally. He also spent a good amount of time at the end of the interview 'selling' me the school, asking if I had questions, etc." -Posted 10/15/2003 | Report Response
