What impressed you positively?

"Everyone seemed so happy to be attending the school. No student had anything negative to say. While waiting to be interviewed one student came and spoke with me on her way to prepare for an exam and stayed there to keep me calm. The dean came and personally introduced himself to me and already knew my name when he came in the waiting room. All students spoke extremly highly of him, pointing out that he takes an extreme interest in getting to know all of the students. The other students I interviewed with seemed so down to earth! The whole process was quick and to the point. There was no extended waiting around time. Everything was very punctual." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only thing that was slightly negative was the length of the interview. It seemed so short compared to all of the other interviewees. It was kind of as though they already had their minds made up whether or not I was a good fit for their school and were interviewing me just as a formality. Thankfully there minds were made up in a positive way. I recieved the congrats phone call the same day the interviewers said they were going to meet!" Report Response

"That I was overly nervous for nothing. Everyone was extremly nice. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a wonderful experience! I will be attending this school in the fall. This was the most relaxing of any interview I had. The interviewers asked specific and to the point questions of me to pinpoint both my strengths and weaknesses to accurately present me to the admissions committee. For me the location was good because it is in a small town, which fits me best because Im from a small Texas town. But what is good is that its only an hour away from Atlantic City and 20 minutes from Philly. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a school with an extremly supportive environment." Report Response
