What impressed you positively?

What impressed you negatively?

"Having time to sit in on first and second year lectures was cool, but there was a little too much down time. There was a poster session that second years had, but we were having lunch and taking the tour at that time." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Just do your hw, and you should be prepared." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Try to stay with a student host. You'll get a great feel for how the students are there, and everyone will tell you how much they like the rest of their class. Rochester left a great impression on me. If you have a student interviewer, he/she will try to grill you a little bit more than the faculty interviewer, so just make sure you're on your toes and you know how to answer the basic interview questions well."
