What impressed you positively?

"The faculty was very pleasant and sincere in wanting to help you. The students were very happy and gave nothing but good comments about their experiences. The institution itself is absolutely beautiful. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was great overall. Just know that you will have two interviews. The one with the faculty is open-file and the one with the student is closed file. (The student interview is over lunch.) You may not have your interview at the Queen Lane Campus because some students get interviewed in other locations. However, they provide you with a shuttle bus. It didn't even take the full 6-8 weeks to get a letter of response. I got my letter of acceptance in 4 weeks." Report Response
