What impressed you positively?

"As mentioned by others, Dr. Haight is a great resource. The have great plans for improving the school and the campus." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The students were friendly but not very enthusaistic about the school. The facilities are still being worked on, and won't be done for quite a while it seemed. $2,000 Non-Refundalbe deposit is a joke-Dr. Haight talks about making the admissions process easier and as inexpensive as possible. Then to ask for a deposit like that is very unrealistic and disrespectful to students." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school is really heading in the right direction, just not there now or in the near future." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The whole day was a fair experience. Dr. Haight was helpful and the curriculum and focus of the school is good. The facilities are fairly poor though improving. The 4 on 4 interview was interesting but OK. I was still fairly enthusiastic about the whole deal until Dr. Haight mentioned the $2,000 non-refundable deposit to hold a spot in the class within two weeks of notification. That basically gives 4 weeks to come up with the money and commit without weighing the options of other schools. Not a good deal." Report Response
