What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I'd have known how pleasant the interview would be. I was expecting something different based upon this website.

What are your general comments?

"The day was enjoyable. I got a good feeling about the school. The student facilities aren't the best, but that is not what is important to me. Besides, what do you expect for $12,300/year? The student rec center is close and is great. The education is great. The other students, faculty and staff are great. There is no doubt in my mind that this is where I want to be." Report Response
