What are your general comments?

"The interview was very relaxed. They really weren't trying to trip you up or confuse you, they just want to talk. I was very impressed by the way they stand by their school...great loyalty. Dr. Leach is incredibly nice. I asked the interview board about reasons for expanding their program, and their first answer was money...apparently their funding has been slashed. That was a little concerning, but overall, a blip on the radar." Report Response
