What impressed you positively?

"The student center and the calm of the campus. It seemed safer than the other places I had been. There seemed to be a welcoming administration, and the senior videos were a neat tradition." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The students I talked to seemed unhappy and kind of dull. Maybe it was exam time, but they seemed to have this, "school is awful; we're just surviving" attitude. The rigid curriculum and inflexible clinicals are a turn off. Also, one of my interviewers pretty much said, "you must choose Southwestern," and maybe it's immature, but I wanted to say, "play hard to get!"" Report Response
