"Almost everything" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I guess one thing would be that people were complaining that it the campus was in the middle of nowhere. To be honest, i was hesitant at first, but if you really worry about that, cincinnati is 2 hours away, you could drive there anytime if you wanted to, and if you really dont like the small town atmosphere, its only for 2 years not including vacation time."

"I honestly didnt know much about the difference between the PCC and the CPC programs, but i got an excellent chance to sit in on both classes, so i know the difference between them now. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall a great experience. I encourage everyone thats interviewing to not only ask a lot of questions, but make the most of your opportunity. I knew going in that this was an opportunity of a lifetime, and to do EVERYTHING that you can. Ask if you can sit in on a class, i got to sit in on 2 classes. Ask to see whatever things they'll let you see, cause the most they can say is no. Definately stay the night with a student there, OU offers it, and i'm surprised that only 10% of the interviewers accepted that offer. Think about it guys: You get an opportunity to stay with a student, see how their life really is, AND you dont have to pay for a hotel room!" Report Response
