What impressed you positively?

"The school is new and the facilities are quite nice. The students at the school seemed friendly and cooperative. The housing is plentifull whether you are talking about on-campus apartments or apartments directly accross from the school. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The weather was really hot. I will echo others sentiments on the third and fourth year rotations; shady is the appropriate word. The school was trying hard to sell us on the benefits of its preceptorship. The lady in charge of setting up the rotations sounded as if she was compensating for lacking "normal" rotations like most other schools have. It sounded very unstructured and disorganized. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school is really far from the city of Phoenix. It is in Glendale which is homely suburb in the Northwest corner of the city. The location isn't bad but when I think of Phoenix, I'm thinking of a large city. And the location reminded me of a nice suburb in a small town or city in a state like Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma or Nebraska." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, AZCOM isn't a bad choice if it is the only school you got into. But if you have a choice between AZCOM and other schools such Kirksville, I would definitely attend that school in a heartbeat. I know I'm going to." Report Response
