What impressed you positively?

"The people were fantastic. I had taken a tour a year ago and was not as impressed. Everyone was very nice and very enthusiatic about this program. They had lots of research opportunities and ways for students to get involved. They told me they really encourage first and second year students to have ''non-study'' activities. Overall it seemed like a very supportive environment." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Iowa City is a great town given it's size, but it's just not very big. Also, it cost $10 to park and other schools I've been to paid for my parking. The box lunch they provided was pretty bad." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day began at 8:30am with three presentations, two from the admissions office and one from financial aid. The group was only 12 people, so it allowed for a lot of questions and time to get to know the other applicants. The interviews began at 10am. Mine was at 10 and then I had to do the Case Based Learning section at 11am. That took one hour and was in a group of five, including the M4 proctor. That was actually lots of fun. The day was closed out with a bad box lunch and a tour from two very enthusiatic (even to the point of silly) M2 students." Report Response
