What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that you may not stay in K.C. during your 3rd and 4th year. Only 100 of the 230 students actually spend their 3rd and 4th year in K.C. Also, the reception night the night before the interview seemed poorly organized because everything was locked up." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the Holiday Inn Express is actually several miles from the University, and unless you are planning on taking the shuttle it is a maze of Interstates to get there. That the 3rd and 4th year are not necessairly spent in K.C. regardless how good you do in classes there is no gurantee you get to stay there if you want. Also, that despite the fact the night before the interview was portrayed to be for your family, it was actually a joke. You only spent less than 30 minutes actually touring the campus." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school has a very nice campus. It is all privately donated which allows for more flexability in their construction. The actual interview was incredibly short. I expected to be in there for at least 30-40 minutes but it seemed like just in the door out the door. It gave the impression that either they really liked me or the really didn't like me. I will find out about that in a couple weeks I guess. The whole day went from 8:00am - 2:30pm. From 8:00am until around 1:00pm we were touring the campus and talking to students." Report Response
