What impressed you positively?

"The faculty were incredibly nice, one even took the time to give me a personal tour when I was wandering around. They really treat you like an equal, and friend. It was an incredible environment to learn in. The students say that some faculty even invite you to hang out at there house as well. Their interaction with the students I noticed was the same as my experience. The whole day was FIRST rate. And the admissions people were so kind, I really appreciated that. They expressed sincere interest in everyone. Even the people in town would say hi to me on the street, even though they had no idea who I was." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Tuition, but that's because I'm out of state, and inevitably expensive." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I didn't need to freak out about the interview because it's purpose was to get to know you as a person. I wish I wouldn't have worried about the increased class size because they are definitely ready for it. It isn't going to be an issue, the staff are very willing to talk about it, and I think some people have blown it up to be an issue when it's not. " Report Response
