What impressed you positively?

"buffalo has some counter-culture, seems like its got some hidden goodness, it was beautiful, my host was really sweet and so many people wrote back to me offering to host when i emailed those on the host list, the tour guide was really enthusiastic albeit a bit too thorough, with info we really didnt need to know - like practical stuff that we only need to know if we end up there (what software is on the computers etc). the students seemed pretty happy and the boys were really cute (seriously, it's like the midwest or the south boyswise), the library was beautiful and the facilities in general were nice, most of all i was impressed by my first interviewer, who was the sweetest old man who seemed to somehow love me before he even interviewed me. the interview was like a heart-to-heart more than anything else, less class time."
