What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Out-of-state tuition is ridiculously high, but extremely reasonable if you are in-state." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"MSUCOM is a very good school, if you are in-state. You only have one interview, w/ a faculty member, and it runs about 45 minutes. There are ~three people interviewing a day, so you do have a lot of attention on you. The tour is pretty quick, and half the rooms are locked so you can't even see them! I think this school is really geared towards Michigan residents. I ended up being accepted out-of-state, and the admissions counselor who called me to tell me I got in said, "I realize there is little chance that you are coming here since you are from out-of-state.""
