What impressed you positively?

"The students seemed like they all really liked each other." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't like either of my interviewers. The first seemed really distracted and literally stared at me for a full two minutes before I started asking questions and trying to have an interview. She was definitely a little batty. The other said out right that the time I had taken off after graduating from college seemed like wasted time. Also while waiting for an interview, a student pulled me aside and said that I should not go to Dartmouth. This was the only school where a student warned me not to go there. And, my student host wouldn't meet me until 11:00 at night even though I arrived during the afternoon because she had to study. That seemed a little weird to me." Report Response
