"The overall attitude of the interviewer and the students that stopped by...everyone there really loves the school, which is very important to me." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was very conversational and relaxed. Even with more difficult questions (ie Where do you see health care going?), I felt it was a dialogue rather than an interrogation; both of us discussed issues/gave opinions equally. He also spent a good amount of time at the end of the interview 'selling' me the school, asking if I had questions, etc." Report Response
