What impressed you positively?

"I was very impressed that my first interviewer knew everything that was in my file. He had thoroughly read everything about me. The faculty and students are extremely nice. The faculty are extremely dedicated to teaching students. The students are willing to collaborate and help each other which makes for a non competitive atmosphere and it fosters maximal learning because of the cooperation. Also there is no curve in the grades, for example honors is not just reserved for the top 15% of the class. The campus facilities are awesome. As an out of state applicant (east coast), I was very impressed with everything I saw and will definitely be attending since I was accepted." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing, I was impressed with everything about the school. I did not get the chance to explore the Toledo area but I read brochures about the musuems and other offerings." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Everything was cool. My first interview was very conversational, it lasted about an hour and ten minutes. My second interview was really short (25 min.) and I was a bit worried but it ultimately did not reflect on my chances of getting in since I received an acceptance letter." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I loved MCO. Although, I'm from the east coast, I just loved the atmosphere, the faculty and the students. The Faculty really care about the students. This school is not for cut-throat competitive people. It is for students who love to work together toward academic acheivement. If you want a nurturing environment, filled with friendly people and faculty who care then MCO is for you. " Report Response
