What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"It was a long day, but everyone should go in expecting that. Buy special soles for your formal shoes (I bought gels, I recommend them). Even with the special soles I was tired after two hours of tours. I can't really explain why I really liked this school, I just did. They try to make everything as relaxed as possible so that you can be yourself. The professors seem to love-love-love-love what they do (even if one of them is a walking cure for insomnia).
