What impressed you positively?

"Everyone seemed very happy to be in buffalo and proud to be a part of the program at UB. The admissions process is handled very differently at UB: you interview on a wednesday, as soon as interviews are done the committee meets and decides where you fit in the applicant group. At 12:00 the next day you find out where you stand whether it is an acceptance, rejection, or wait list (and if so what third you are in on the wait list). I was totally nervous from 9-12 but by 12 I knew the answer. It just seems like a great and better way of handling this process and the admissions dean, who seemed like a no-nonsense kind of guy, fully explains the things they do differently and why. Students were very down to earth, friendly, and non-competitive." Report Response
