What are your general comments?

"It was pretty stress-free. They told me the interviews would be like a conversation but that wasn't entirely accurate. It was a boardroom setting with me against three faculty members. They just asked questions and I answered them. Not a conversation at all, but they were easy, "Get to know you" kinds of questions. Later we got to check out the facilities and classes while they were in session. It was a nice day overall. Unfortunately, some things aren't that high-tech. They don't have wireless yet, and they don't have some facilities like at Kirksville and Des Moines where they bring in actors for you to be practice patients." Report Response
