How did you prepare for the interview?

"Meditation, wrote small essays on my own, read the news, had a coffee." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The rearrangement of the class into 'colleges,' which apparently is reducing the competetiveness of the class. Also, the lead interviewer made the explicit statement that they are working to foster a more cohesive student culture. This was very good to hear, and increased my desire to join the class of 2006. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing honestly. I already new the facilities leave much to be desired." Report Response
