What impressed you positively?

"The people here are awesome. It felt like they were legitimately trying to sell the school and wanted us to want to come there, which is a feeling I didn't get from most other places so far. I guess Jeff is a bit more selective in who they grant interviews to so they really stressed that the biggest hurdle was getting an invite and spent the rest of the day impressing us, whether it was at lunch (best lunch so far), with hosting, or with putting us in a super nice conference room to start the day." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Our tour was a bit rushed, the guide seemed a bit concerned that we would run out of time, and she was only a first year student, so she didn't seem to quite have a handle on things yet. It wasn't a huge negative, though." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Our interview group was huge, about 30 people. I guess it wasn't a big deal since we split it later, but it was a bit intimidating to walk in on." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Both the student and faculty interviews were very informal, and I felt comfortable the whole time. Don't stress about these!" Report Response
