What impressed you positively?

"Friendly and outgoing staff, exam block was underway and many students and several faculty stopped by and talked to us. The Dean came in and really spent some time with the group of interviewees learning about our background, answering questions, etc. Roger Corbman is friendly, outgoing, funny, and really seems to enjoy helping and getting to know the applicants. Family-like atmosphere everywhere at the school. The school seems to operate smoothly for such a short time in business. New facilities: cadaver lab, lecture halls, omm lab all high-tech and brand new. Also, a gym and indoor basketball/volleyball court are nearly complete and will be really nice (Perhaps, the only non-school activity on campus) Most of all, VERY efficient decision by ADCOM. Application to Secondary Application = 2 weeks. Secondary submitted to interview offer = 2 days. Interview on Tuesday, ADCOM met on Thursday, Email of decision on Friday, Letter on Monday. The MD schools I applied at took MONTHS and MONTHS just to process primary, secondary, or make interview decision, let alone decide on Admit/Wait/Reject after interview. How is it that a new institution can have there act together so much better than the others that are so slow and disorganized even though they have been doing it for years?" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"General location of campus (Industrial Park). Lack of windows or outdoor facilities. Parking could become an issue as the class size grows and other programs are added. No food on campus or immediately nearby. No bookstore at all." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I knew the class was nearly full, but wish I had known that they already had 150 people on the waitlist. As already mentioned in other feedback, the school can be difficult to find. If I had not driven around the night before to locate it, then I would have been late like a couple of other interviewees. Vegas offers a lot, but the area around the school doesn't really seem to offer much. No food on campus, but a sandwhich was provided at the end of the interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The people (both staff and students) are what really make this college work! The interview was low stress and converstaional - relax and enjoy sharing your background and experiences with the interviewers. We laughed several times, and although they started out with questions to get things going, it evolved into a conversation. The interview will consist of one staff member and one teaching faculty. Be aware that anyone you meet at the school may be involved in evaluating you! They deefinately read your file and ask you questions right out of your application - Know your application! There was an error on the way that one of my classes was recorded or processed and, thankfully, they asked me about it - my file showed me short credit hours for the English hours requirement. I had a copy of my AACOMAS application and was able to clear it up right then." Report Response
