What impressed you positively?

"The 4th year student who interviewed me and the 5 other students that I met during the panel and tour all seemed like people that I would get along with really well. The facilities blew my mind (I went to a really small school that had much less funding for undergraduate). What really finalized my positive impression was the faculty though. During the tour, we ran into 2 different faculty members. They seemed happy, excited to talk to us, and really genuine. I would love to have them as professors in the future." Report Response
