What impressed you negatively?

"Wednesday = no class so I didn't get to meet many students. Be careful when scheduling your interviews!" -Posted 04/10/2005 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I went to Stanford for undergrad and I still live in the Bay Area, so really not much was new. I recommend checking out the undergrad campus. Warning - do not be fooled into thinking that Stanford is very close to SF. It still takes a 30-40 min drive to get there. Stanford is usually described as a "bubble" for a good reason." -Posted 04/10/2005 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great, very positive. The first interviewer had a specific set of questions and he took notes on my answers. The second was much less formal and more like a conversation. I had two faculty." -Posted 04/10/2005 | Report Response
