What impressed you positively?

"The financial aid presentation was great. The person presenting seemed very knowledgeable about different federal/state programs and ways to pay for school. The curriculum seemed more organized than I thought it would be. Students seemed pretty happy with Wake Forest, AND with Winston Salem. The all-you-can-eat lunch was great!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Seems like a lot of time spent in class. I was not a big fan of the 3 short interviews because I didn't get a chance to have really good conversations with my interviewers. We barely had time for just a few rapid-fire questions without a lot of discussion or "bonding" time. Also, the school's website doesn't have a lot of information on it, especially regarding the curriculum." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"As you have probably read elsewhere, it IS difficult to find the admissions office. To be on the safe side, I would try to park/arrive at the hospital a half hour before your interview so you have plenty of time in case you get lost. Even one of our student tour guides got a little lost trying to find the admissions office after the tour!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I liked Wake Forest more than I thought I would! I will definitely go here if I can figure out a good way to pay for it without it being dramatically more expensive than a state school." Report Response
