What impressed you negatively?

"The roads around the school and in some parts of Lewisburg. Many are one way only and I wouldn't be surprised if there was a bit of congestion during the morning." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That Lewisburg isn't as rural as some wold lead you to believe. That or most people haven't been in a really rural area. Lewisburg has a Wal-mart, applebeas, and several other restaurants and shops so its not that bad. I come from a town that doesn't have anything nicer then a fast food restaurant and a Wal-mart is 30 minutes away so I thought Lewisburg was great." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Our day started at 8 where we were given a schedule of the day and what times we were to interview. The interview was very relaxing and conversational. They truly seemed to just want to get to know you. When we weren't interviewing we were free to look around and sit in classes. We met with fin. aid, a PBL instructor, and the clinical director. We had lunch at the General Lewis Inn with some students and then we had a tour of the school. If we had interviewed in the morning we were free to leave. The students interviewing in the afternoon didn't have to be there til 11:30." Report Response
