How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, undergrad's interview feedback forms, school's website" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Well, the anatomy lab is well-ventilated. That's about it. The travel accomodations are nice. Stay at the Best Western, it'll make your life easier." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"A lot! The location, the isolation of being on an old base, the lack of clinical experience the first two years, the look of the campus, etc. They're supposedly opening a campus in Vegas (big red flag when they won't talk about it) while they really do need to concentrate on improving the Vallejo campus." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Definitely will not be going here. I feel my $30,000ish tuition would be going nowhere productive. The $2,000 in 2 weeks--they're crooks. They know how the application process works. They need $$ to build on the school (if you see it, you'll know what I mean) and they have this ridiculous deposit to take $ for those who need to just secure a spot SOMEWHERE. Don't let the "friendly" dean fool you. Evaluate the school carefully." Report Response
