What impressed you negatively?

"the facilities seemed small, but that is probably because my tour guide only showed us 2 rooms (i don't know why). she also wasn't as enthusiastic as i would have hoped. but it was probably just a bad day for students, as i heard that they all had exams this week, so didn't see a lot of them.

What are your general comments?

"overall, it was a great experience and i came out of it with a much better impression than going into it. 1st, after going there and Dr. Armstrong speaking to us about the curriculum, i realized how amazingly innovative this program is and not at all restrictive and intense as many people preconceive it to be. 2nd, their mantra is humility and compassion! and they were completely genuine about that. 3rd, what more can you ask for, it's top then school. would definitely be beyond lucky to get accepted.
