What impressed you negatively?

"The school is in a rougher neighborhood, but you can either live in the huge apartment complex across the street (with security access) or in another region of the city (easily accessed by bus/car, etc). The gym doesn't have any fitness classes (spin, yoga, kickboxing, etc), but I guess a bunch of the students go together to a gym in the area with these classes." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not much. No one greeted me when I walked in to the meeting area in the morning. It was all students sitting around a table and I wasn't sure I was in the right spot. But there were nametags at each spot (alphabetically) and as soon as I found my seat I felt comfortable. The other interviewing students were really friendly and easy to get along with. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very easy, laid back. 4 questions total. The current students told us that the screening process is thorough, and students interviewing have more than an 80% chance of getting admitted. The interviewers just want to meet you and make sure your personality matches with the school and that you are the person who wrote your application (that what you wrote matches with your personality and mannerisms, etc). They said they'd get back to us within 2 weeks, by USPS, to let us know the results. " Report Response
