What impressed you positively?

"All students and staff were very friendly and laid-back. They had us do our interviews first, so we could relax the rest of the day (for the tour, lunch, etc.). The interviewer was personable, kind, seemed genuinely interested in me as an individual, asked questions relevant to my app, not just 'standard' questions." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much... I wish they would have talked a bit more about student groups, volunteer and shadowing opportunities. However, those are questions you can ask the student guides directly. Oh, parking is expensive." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
