What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Haight, the Director of Admissions, spent probably the entire day with us making sure that we got all our questions answered in a straight forward way and to make sure that the entire experience went smoothly. I knew how they interview and that it was different than I had done in the past and was anxious. He relieved the vast majority of my anxiety. I've been to schools where I haven't even met the Dean of Admissions, and he spent the entire day with us. I couldn't have been more impressed by his honesty and the way he sincerely cares. If I get accepted, and I accept their offer, it will be mostly because of him." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The $2000 deposit. But I was aware of that before I went on my interview because I reviewed this site. I think it is a joke that people post on this site that they were surprised. First, they don't try to hide the deposit they charge, and second, those same people had to have read the same prior posts that I read. Still,I don't know where I'll get the $2000." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the facilites are really quite modern. You can't tell from the outside. Dr. Haight explained that there were serious restictions on what they could do with the outside of buildings, restriction imposed by the Historical Society." Report Response

"This was my best interview so far and I'm sure that it was because of the Dean of Admissions. He honestly cares." Report Response
