What impressed you positively?

"The students were very nice and friendly. The ones I met all seemed to like it there and did not really have anything negative to say about the school. They seemed happy, had time to hang out and have fun too." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Facilities weren't the pretties. I heard that a lot of changes have been made in the last few years. One student said it used to be run by "old white guys" but he said it has changed. The current 4th year students said its completely a different school now for the 1st and 2nd years." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school is downtown, lots of cars everywhere. Not bad, just different. The housing for students is kinda pricey, but you are right there next to the school. They were on probation a while ago. Not very many students attend class." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a good time there, the students were nice. I stayed in a medical fraternity house and the rent is incredibly cheap to live there. The student interview is a little pointless, it lasted about 20 minutes since we were running late and we spent most of the time looking for a place to sit. The post interview wrap up is nothing exciting, they were supposed to have cookies, but I did not see anything. Good if you have questions, not really worthwhile if you dont have any, so its ok to miss." Report Response
