"The campus was small and intimate, which may or may not bother people. Most people live on campus in pretty nice housing. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't get the impression that students were especially happy there. The tour guides, while friendly and pleasant, were probably the least enthusiastic I've encountered. I didn't get much student interaction outside the tour, actually. Also, while most lectures you sit in on are pretty much the same, this one was horrendously bad. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Day started at 8am, lots of the standard talks by admissions staff. Then I had my interview. Most people had really casual, informal interviews, but I was one of the few who had a guy who really like to talk about ethics. In retrospect, he wanted to have more of an academic discussion rather than grill you. But still, I got kind of stressed out. The interview was followed by a tour and lunch--nothing too remarkable.
