What impressed you negatively?

"For the price of tuition and the fact their school is almost brand new, I have been to some schools where the technology is much better and facilities are nicer and the tuition is less. The wireless internet is restricted to only a few areas of campus, they don't record lectures, the class rooms and lecture hall don't look all that comfortable for the amount of time needed to be spent in them. If you are looking for a gym, you might miss it and the student center if you blink." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We arrived at 7:45AM, some of us earlier, we sat around until 8:15AM or so. They then had a financial aid discussion before we were split into two groups. Some of us were in the first interview group and othersw in the first tour group. Then we switched. Afterward we had lunch and then learned more about the school and student services. Everyone was very nice. The tour could have been a little more informative. We had lots of downtime as others have also stated. Mostly you spend time getting to know the other 20 applicants but you may want to bring a book or study materials with you." Report Response
