What are your general comments?

"It was an enjoyable experience for the most part. Interviewing after being accepted into another school makes the whole process a lot easier, but it does make my decision a lot harder now since I have been accepted to CCOM as well. It was a different experience to have the tour guide refers questions to me, since I live a little more than a mile from the school. I did not like the fact that the students boast about skipping class, nor did I like the casual nature of school. Personally, it felt like a small undergraduate college, not the atmosphere one would expect for training professional students" Report Response
