What impressed you positively?

"The students and faculty attitude. They were all very nice, laid back and informative, even those that were just walking around the building would say Hi to you and tell you about the school. The school offers a lot of hands-on experience before you graduate (APEX in the 1st and 2nd years and then the externship program of your 4th year)I think these are very helpful for practice before you go into the field." Report Response

"Tuition...Expensive!!! Also, I could see that if I go there I would not be able to use my car at all and I don't like public transportation...traffic is hectic and you can't find parking spaces anywhere in the city! " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the interview was going to be so laid back and stress free. That I didn't need to rent car b/c it was faster and easier to use public transportation system (T)...the car was a waste of money.
