What impressed you positively?

"The students at the school seemed to enjoy it there. The school is very near san fran and the town had a generally good feeling to it. The OMM lab is a great facility. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The professors seemed somewhat pretentious. Although I understood why they did the interview in the manner that they did, I really felt that it didn't allow much personal time to sit with faculty so that they could truly get to know your character. I think that this could have been incorporated into the interview day, but that a personal interview would have been nice too. I really didn't feel that it was worth the trip to just let someone see 8 minutes (one hour of interviews with 6 other people in the room leaves VERY little personal time) of your personality." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That it was going to rain the ENTIRE day!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I liked the school a lot more than I was expecting given the comments on other interview feedback posts. However, there were definitely aspects of the whole day that left me feeling somewhat neutral about the school. The student who gave us the tour seemed to know very little about the program and didn't know the resources in which the school had to offer. He also acted as if he had just gone there because no one else had accepted him. I have worked very hard to get to this point in my life and want a tour guide who knows a LOT about the program and is able to answer my questions and realizes that this is an EXTREMELY important decision for prospective students to make."
