"Was very laid back. I would just relax and go with the flow. If you don't like rural areas then you probably won't like it. Also, they seem to want down to earth people you enjoy helping the underserved." More from this Member | Report Response

"We basically got there at 8:30 and reported to the student lounge where we had breakfast and talked amongst ourselves. Then we were split into two groups and starting at 9:00 group I had their student led tour followed by there one-on-one interview. Group II got to do their introduction and essay assignment. Vickie Keene also went over the student files one-by-one to make sure all requirements were in order. At 12 we all reported to the gym (classroom) where we had lunch and again talked amongst ourselves... then Group II had their student tours followed by interviews and Group I had the introduction/file review. The whole thing was over by 2:30. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived at 8:30, had breakfast, chit-chat a little bit with the other interviewees. Each of us had our own folder to tell which group we would be in. I was in the second group, so we did the orientation first while the students in group 1 had their interviews. During the orientation, the Dean talked about the school, the financial aid, etc..etc...just trying to sell the school to us. Then after she was done, Vickie Keene, the director of admissions, passed out a questionnaire and an essay for us to write. It was easy. Then after we were done, Vickie sat down with us, one-on-one, and went over to files to see what was still missing. After that was lunch. I had to wait until 2:00 for my interview. So I just basically sat there and chit-chatting with the current students. They seemed very supportive of the school and very nice. When I walked in, they told me that they will introduce themselves and then I have to introduce myself to them. Then they have 4 questions that they ask everybody there on that day. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was given a name tag when I got there and told to wait in a room where other people that came for the interview were also waiting. Then UACP students came in and intoduced themselves and told us to ask any questions before the interview. We were then given breakfast(which was nice). We were then split up into 2 groups-one group were going to be interviewed and the other group was going to listen to a speech given by the dean. I was then taken on a tour of the facility by one of the student. I then went for my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole experience was laid back. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was alright." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very disappinted by their curriculum. I thought this institution was built for serving for underdeveloped citizens. But, it seems like they do not have specific plan and existing services sounded so commonsense to me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was really nervous, but the interviewers wanted you to relax and be yourself (which was hard to do)!! Good experience overall." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great time. The traveling was terrible as I live in Arizona and the interview was in Virginia. The town is very small but the area is beautiful." More from this Member | Report Response
