What impressed you positively?

"The new building is very nice, the mountains are fantastic, the students seemed very friendly and enjoyed going to school there. The curriculum is more interdisciplinary than I originally thought. It's also the cheapest school that I've applied to." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not a diverse student body in any way, and I'm used to going to school at very homogeneous places. The Dean went on at length about not finishing all the classes/majors/research projects, etc. that one might claim during the application process- if you mislead them, they give you the boot. That shouldn't surprise anyone, but he really hammered this point concluding with "don't try to play hardball with the guy who's got the biggest bat." Hilarious! I don't expect he caught the double-entendre of this..." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That everyone at my interview day would be male and white and still in college (except me). And that there's little chance of finding out their decision until March/April." Report Response
