What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How negative the environment was. How much the staff was going to try and sell NOVA to me as if I was the only student who had ever applied." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I wish the previous negative post had been added sooner. I may not have come or at least asked more questions from the current students. The staff made us sign a policy notice about the attendance but it seems that in the past it was only a paper rule with no teeth. I saw the scanners on the wall and our tour guide said it has caused great tension amoung the students and faculty. It seems that NOVA is a modern and cutting edge campus but until their own medical students endorse their school, I can't take the chance on a making a bad decision I will have to live with for the rest of my life."
