What impressed you positively?

"Bard hall doesn't deserve the criticism it gets. Yes, it is an old, somewhat run-down building, but it's clean, is well-heated, and the shower has EXCELLENT water pressure. What more can you ask for? " -Posted 01/05/2005 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The LOUD-ass radiators in Bard hall. The NOISE outside Bard hall (which I guess shouldn't be a problem for those who have lived in dorms in a busy city). The fact that visiting students staying in Bard weren't somehow coordinated or given each other's email addresses. It would've been nice to get together the night before." -Posted 01/05/2005 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview itself was low stress and conversational, but it was hard to tell whether the doctor actually liked me (he didn't smile that much). It's true the school doesn't do much to sell itself, but apparently they're working on fixing that. " -Posted 01/05/2005 | Report Response
