What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. I'm sad the new building won't be up till '09, but really, whether or not your room has 5 plasma screens isn't going to be the determining factor of how good your education will be :)" -Posted 10/19/2007 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That it was so relaxed and fun. You do probably need to be a social/talkative person to enjoy it though since there's a lot of group interaction. I personally really like baltimore, it gets a bad rap, but there's lots of fun things to do here." -Posted 10/19/2007 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Financial aid talk, then lunch with faculty, then interviews. Student interview closed file, very informal and very enjoyable, just be ready to talk about your life A LOT. Then hung out in the ''group room'' and then interviewed with faculty which was a little more formal and structured, but still pretty relaxed and conversational. Oh, the students you hang out with in the group room are on the committee, and get to cast a preliminary vote, but don't get an official final vote, just fyi. " -Posted 10/19/2007 | Report Response
