What impressed you positively?

"I was very impressed by how well the interviewers knew my application. It was obvious they put a lot of effort into learning about their candidates. Buffalo is not as "in the middle of nowhere" as everyone claims it is. The facilities were quite nice, the students were laid back." Report Response

"Nothing really. " Report Response

"That I could have gotten an earlier flight back; and that the weather is really not that bad (then again, this has been very mild winter in NY)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The students all seemed pretty chill and the interview was pretty laid back. However, it was pretty obvious that the interviewers were reading questions off a sheet. Furthermore, as soon as I would start answering a question, all 3 interviewers would suddenly start writing, and that was a bit intimidating at first - felt like I was a school teacher or something - one interviewer even apologized about it. Overall, it was a very good experience and I great school." Report Response
