What impressed you positively?

"My Interviewer was very sweet and very endearing. She genuinely wanted to know about me and who I was and listened very intently to what I had to say. She was receptive to all of my questions and offered words of encouragement - I really lucked out this time. Also, the dean was a really great guy. His speech(es) were well thought out and very genuine,even though they sounded rehearsed a bit. He is a great guy who will answer anything and everything you want to know, and he really emphasized the whole application process as one which can lead to a better understanding of yourself."
