What impressed you positively?

"Technology and the secretary in the admissions office is friendly" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"IF YOU HAVE AN ACCEPTANCE TO ANOTHER SCHOOL, DO NOT BOTHER GOING TO THIS INTERVIEW. The interviewer was rude and condescending and the location is horrible. Believe me, I went there with an open mind, but was really disappointed. Also, the student interviewer told me to go to the school that I was already accepted and he did not seem very happy there. Also, the PIL and IFM students seem to not like each other's programs. And last but not least, COST." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I had called the admissions office and asked about the grading system when I was deciding to interview and was told it is honors, pass, fail. When we were there, we found out it is a 5 tiered system. Also, the students are sent out to locations all over the state for 3rd and 4th year, which makes school more difficult." Report Response

"If you have a female psychiatrist interview you, who also coordinates some academic programs, expect a rude interview. The other student who interviewed with her, had the same experience that I did." Report Response
