"The student that gave us the tour said that in his opinion, while staff are nice he doesn't feel like they make that extra effort to be really warm, inviting, available, close to the students, etc." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The first few people that speak to you in the morning know your name, picture, file, etc., so they'll just call yu by name and ask you something and you'll be caught off guard b/c you didn't know that they knew you. (When someone pops a question at you they aren't looking for anything sophisticated - just say something short and normal.) This whole thing was a little weird, but it shows that they're really concerned with the acceptance process and take it very seriously." Report Response
