What impressed you positively?

"Extremely friendly and warm interviewers and the school in general had a vibe of community which I loved. Was the opposite of the cut-throat, gunner vibe that is supposedly found at very competitive schools. The day was designed to be as low stress as possible and you didn't feel under the microscope at all. You were simply given the opportunity to demonstrate what kind of person you were and why you would be a valuable addition to the school." Report Response

"Nothing really. Overall it was a fantastic experience." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
