What impressed you negatively?

"You basically have to have a car to get around off campus. I was not impressed by the on-campus housing, where almost all the first and second years seem to live. Only one campus building is wireless, but that seemed to be where students would be all the time, so not actually a bad thing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I stayed with a first-year host but they had a big exam the following day. Saw the hosts for maybe five whole minutes then just sat around their apartment all night. If you randomly pick a host, ask if it would be more convenient to stay with someone from the other class." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Pretty stress-free day. Had the opportunity to sit in on some lectures. Interview was conversational, not bad at all. My interviewer was a clinician and knew basically nothing about the school, so he couldn't answer any questions I'd prepared for my interview; he was really nice though. Tour guides were really helpful. " Report Response
