What impressed you positively?

"The city is phenomenal! The people were really really nice (in and out of the school). Lectures are posted in mp3 and they are working to get them videotaped as well. You can walk to a lot of places, and the public transportation system is simply amazing. The administration (despite comments I've seen somewhere else) is very welcoming towards the students. Some schools tell you "don't call us, we'll call you", at Jeff they encouraged us to keep contacting them." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that they are not that much into research (not that I'm a research guru but I'd like to have good opportunities to explore the field and get some experience). As my interviewer put it, getting into research is a matter of persistence, and being at the right place at the right time...Hummm. I'm excited about the new building but it's going to take 2 years to complete. " Report Response

"Nothing really. You don't have to spend 25$+ in a cab to get to the school, you simply hop in the train at the airport terminal (about 6$)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall I had a great experience and I left with the feeling that THIS school was the one (I got my acceptance letter 2 weeks later :) ). The interview with the faculty was laidback (a little stressful in my opinion but nothing horrible). But all in all I loved the school and the city!" Report Response
