What impressed you positively?

"The school is basically like the Matrix. It is filled with technology that makes classes and information more accessible to students. For instance, each day's classes are posted as video on the web by early afternoon. Also, the admissions staff were very helpful and accommodating. I interviewed on a day following a snow storm. One of the doctors on their admissions team really put in the extra time to make certain that our chat was a comprehensive one." Report Response
