What impressed you positively?

"All my friends who got into TCOM last year were there. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The amount of debt." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had both of my interviews in the morning so I was basically done before 9:15, which is a good thing. I went on the school tour and had lunch with some of the second years. They were very nice. Everything they said seemed scripted, but it's ok. They can't really talk bad about the school. Then after lunch, the second year students took us to the anatomy lab where we saw two cadavers and an inguinal hernia. Then we went to visit the first year students who were having their orientation. After that, we met Stan and Norm, the school's infamous mannequins. I was done by 1 pm. Overall, it's a wonderful school, but I don't think it's worth $150K for four years." Report Response
