"The schools facilities, they were horrible. I also didn't like the fact that they fail to mention that the class is full around this time, so you are just interviewing to get waitlisted. They beat around the bush when asked about the class being full. Luckily, I'm from the area, it really sucks for the people who had to fly in." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviews and people doing the interviews are laid back and friendly. The other interviewees are also really friendly.
