What impressed you positively?

"Veeeeerrrry relaxed interview. Interviewers were very conversational, and I felt that they held a lot of insight into the pre-med mind... Also, the students were chill. One of the 9? biochem profs came and told us about why we should attend the school, both he and the DEAN were cool/convincing. Good board scores, VERY flexible 4th year, with the school seeming very supportive of those who want to go do audition rotations ANYWHERE, also felt very friendly to those who want to specialize.
