What impressed you positively?

"The school itself and especially the curriculum. I think systems based is the only way to go." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Kansas City sucks! The city is so lame I would never go back to even visit. There is nothing to do there and I would never leave my family home alone with out a security guard! The location (as everyone has stated) is ghetto. My interview group was even harassed by a passer just crossing the street. The man told us that he hoped we would fail our exam and get kicked out of school. The rest I didn't catch because my Eubonics is not the best. You couldn't live anywhere near the campus." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How lame Kansas City is. Also that the nice places to live are north of the river. After seeing those areas on my way to the airport, I felt a bit better if I had to move there for school with my wife and coming child. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was nothing exciting. Very relaxed and informal. They really just wanted to get to know you. They try to put you with interviewers that have a similar background which is very helpful. I liked the school but not the location" Report Response
