What impressed you positively?

"Most of the students I met were very nice, and the school is so big, so there are soooo many different opportunities and places to learn and rotate." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour guide was horrible-she just read a bit off of a piece of paper and didn't even tell us her name. Also, there was a lot of down time during the day, probably because there were a lot of people being interviewed at different times." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Lots of downtime-I'm glad I had a campus map, because I just walked around myself to make up for the awful tour. They don't seem to expect you to just go back to the check-in place and sit between things, which a lot of people did. I was at least able to do something in between." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall everyone was very nice and interesting, but above all honest in their answers to our questions. They like IU, but didn't try to convince us it was perfect or anything. The only really negative thing was the tour- our tour guide seemed to not want to be there, but hopefully we were just unlucky. " Report Response
