What are your general comments?

"I had a great time at this school. I did not expect to like it nearly as much as I did. It was so convenient to stay at a hotel where UHS would shuttle you to and from the interview. As far as the campus goes, they have really nice facilities and a lot of their equipment seems new. The students are really down to earth and nice and want to help you anyway they can so that you get all of your questions answered. After spending some time at UHS, I think whoever decides to go there, if accepted, will get a great education in a really supportive environment." Report Response
