What impressed you positively?

"The professionalism. From the admissions director to the ladies who greet you in front of the building, they continually impressed me with their demeanor. This school has a relaxed atmosphere but has some real serious students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing major...except the ratio was quite horrible ... there were only two guys there. The rumor that the school favors African American girls was no joke -- they really did only except five guys a few years back." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How easy the campus was to find...the directions were right on target. Being in the middle of the AUC is a pretty good area to be due to the neighboring schools in the vicinity." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was the most relaxed experience I think I will have as far as interviews go. The admissions director was a little intimidating, but he seems like he is a good guy. We got there early and were lead to a room where the ad director talks about the school. The morning session (the one I was in) interviews almost immediately as you get upstairs, so be prepared to go once you get out of the elevator. The room was really small -- you cannot hide from any questions or eye contact. My interviewer was nice, and I didn't really get any hard questions. Afterwards we were treated to lunch and a video of their Match Day. A tour followed and I was back in my hometown six hours later. Painless. " Report Response
