What impressed you positively?

"the students seemed very happy and content. i got a sense that they were the most important assets of the establishment: more important than the famous hospital (and its patients) or the nobel-prize-winning faculty and the world-class research projects that are going on." -Posted 11/25/2004 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the buildings/campus was very dull and ugly. the neighborhood did not seem too safe. we kept hearing of the widely-acclaimed faculty but, apart from my faculty interviewer, we didn't meet any faculty that seemed that top notch." -Posted 11/25/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"both interviews went well. both the faculty and student interviewers were there to listen and were very friendly and approachable. the whole experience ended up being kind of cheesy as the faculty interviewer switched to more of a recruiting tone than an interviewing one. but who knows, maybe that is how he approaches every interviewee." -Posted 11/25/2004 | Report Response
