What are your general comments?

"Overall, the curricular design is very much based on self-directed learning. A good deal of technology is involved and used in both group and pbl. I liked the school (although there are definately few frills compared to other schools, but as one student said the positive of that is that you don't increase your debt to study somewhere "pretty" either), but was a little disappointed with one of my interviews. It was my first at the school...the guy showed up late and then only talked to me for 20 minutes. Nice guy, but seemed to have had me sized up based on my app. It was all positive, but a little different than any other interview I've experienced and somewhat frustrating." Report Response
