"Several current students and faculty randomly stopped by to chat with our group of candidates. I really enjoyed talking with them and it made me feel welcome.

Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The 4th year student that acted as our tour guide was very cynical, pessimistic and rather discouraging. The campus is very large and very windy which made me wonder how much time is spent walking between buildings especially in bad weather. I wanted to see one of the labs. The tour guide showed us every lecture hall on campus, but we didn't get to see one lab. " Report Response

"Everyone was friendly and accommodating. It was a fairly long day with the tour, information session, actual interview and group activity. The campus is really nice and has interesting art pieces.
