What are your general comments?

"The admissions staff was very helpful and helped make the whole interview process less stressful. When you first arrive, they go over the schedule for the day and you sit in the order in which you'll interview. There are two sets of interviewers. You are given an article before the interview to read and summarize during the interview. The faculty asked me some difficult questions, but I think it was more to see how I would handle being in a stressful situation. Most of my questions were specific to my file and my career interests. They were very friendly and seemed to be happy at the school. The tour of the school was good, but since no classes were going on and many students aren't on campus on Fridays, so it was hard to tell what student life is really like. The students that came to talk to us had only good things to say about the PBL curriculum. Even though the school is in kind of a remote area, there is a lot to do in the area. The beach is only 10 min away and Tampa is 1 hour away. Overall, it seems like a great place to go to school. Coming from California, the only draw back for me is the lack of diversity in the surrounding Bradenton area. I got accepted though and may go there! " Report Response
