What impressed you negatively?

"That I would love the school so much" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was pretty laid-back (as we were continually assured throughout the day) but it was not the most laid back interview ever. The two interviewers were a current professor and an alumnus who was also a part-time prof. The alumnus was a little confrontational and asked most of the questions. I felt a little like he was trying to trip me up, but I think, looking back, that he was just trying to make sure that I was right for the school (and vice versa) by really grilling me."
