What impressed you negatively?

"The library was too small, although it was nice. The students and other interviewees didn't seem particularly excited or happy or articulate.

Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interview was semi-closed file... I'm not sure how much of my file my interviewer looked at ahead of time. She was definitely confused about my progress through school... and that made my interview go in a weird direction." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Eh, I guess you can see above. The day starts early and after the cab drivers rip you off, you listen to a little presentation welcoming you, then on the school program (which sounds largely self-directed), a VERY short part of financial aid (10 minutes, and she didn't tell us the cost of tuition), then you sit around waiting for interviews. I didn't feel like they tried to "sell" their school very well. They did ask for a feedback form, though." Report Response
