What impressed you positively?

"The students there were all really nice, and so were the people at the admissions office. It's really cheap to live in Albany and it seems like a nice place." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviews! Actually the first guy was mostly alright, except that he seemed a bit arrogant. My second interviewer was the worst of any school I've been to so far. I can't decide if he was just a mean person, if he decided he didn't like me from reading my application, or if he was trying seem intimidating to test my reaction or something... In any event, this guy was definitely not interested in getting to know me and mostly told me to ask questions (3 different times during the interview actually). The interviews were unproductive and not a good time at all." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I said that there was no change in how the interview impressed me because I want to be fair: the school is really nice. The interviews themselves, though, sucked! Just make sure you rehearse some pretty answers to common ethical dilemmas and you'll probably be fine. " Report Response
