What impressed you positively?

"I had been to the school before so I was already familiar with the campus. The facilities are really nice and relatively new. The friendliness of the students and the faculty. Also, the plethora of information that was given to the prospective students about the school and its program. I did not need to ask questions because they were all answered." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Just waiting in a room while the other students were being interviewed. They really did not have anything for us to do while we waited. But a few students came in and spoke to us about the school, so that helped. Also, I felt that the interviewers asked questions so quickly that I was unable to say as much as I would have liked."

What are your general comments?

"After all of the interviewees arrived, the assistant director of admissions took us to breakfast in the cafeteria. She gave us so much information that many of my questions were answered. Then we waited in the lobby of the admissions office while everyone was being interviewed. While waiting, a few of us sat in on a lecture. Then current students came into the waiting area and spoke to us about the school and answered a lot of questions. After everyone was interviewed, 3 students took us on a tour of the school. The day started at around 8am and ended at around 1pm." Report Response
