What impressed you negatively?

"Dress code, disinterest/coldness of interviewers, somewhat unaccommodating to out of state students." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"PBL is NOT like a study group. Do not say you think it's great because you've studied in a group before. It is INDEPENDENT study. An online course with a direction but no guidance on how to get to the exam would be a closer comparison than a study group." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Be prepared to be underwhelmed by some aspects of the school. No caffeine in the library. Security cameras everywhere (NOT for security! They're watching students!). Favoring male applicants strongly. Otherwise I really liked the PBL session I sat in on and think it's one of the best COMs out there. I thought it was striking that though this was a new school, they do NOT respond to the suggestions of students. Our tour guides had many complaints and wry smiles when talking about trying to get things changed at the school. It seems the administration values its own opinions over those of the students."
