What impressed you positively?

"From the moment Dr. Haight, Dean of Admissions, met us at the hotel until at the very end when we walked us to the shuttle to take us back, I felt that he really wanted me and the others to do well. He is so refreshingly honest. No BS and I love that. One of the people interviewing with my group brought her father. Dr. Haight couldn't have been more hospitable. He invited him to tour with our group and even join us for when we had lunch. I overheard the father tell Dr. Haight how much it meant to him to be included. He wasn't my dad, but I almost cried when I heard what he said. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"Everything that has been said out Dr. Haight is true and more. I've seen better facilities, but not a better anatomy lab anywhere.
