What impressed you negatively?

"the curriculum is a bit odd, not traditional by any means. the students were so-so on it, but i don't really think it's a big deal. if you can get into this school, the curriculum won't be an issue i'm sure." -Posted 01/15/2007 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"the day is not really structured, you'll have your 2 interviews at some point during the day, a lunch and tour, and that's about it. very few are late in the afternoon, but some other guys had them. if you are concerned about curriculum or anything else read up beforehand and make sure you ask questions." -Posted 01/15/2007 | Report Response
