What impressed you positively?

"They appear to be really making an effort to strengthen the program there. They are doing a ton of construction and the students were very enthusiastic for the most part. There were some that were a little bit less so which I think was also valuable. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Ugly from the outside. Horrible. It seriously looks like a terrible community college from the outside. Inside however it is quite nice and very modern and well equipped. The addmissions staff was abominable in the sense that they lost my LOR's. Very annoying especially since I tracked them and had evidence (the name of the person) that they signed and received them. It was like trying to deal with 3-year olds. This was only one individual in admissions however. Everyone else seemed quite competant and was very delightful. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Don't listen to the jerk off below who says that the Shereton Fairplex is overpriced and terrible place to stay. They are an idiot who obviously payed too much and didn't get the discount. The cost is 105 a night down from 260 a night. The rooms are huge with a living room and bedroom. The service is exellent, and they provide free shuttles from the airport and school (this alone will save you 50 in cab fees at least). Stay at the sheraton and ask about their rates for applicants." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was very relaxed. Just the usual tour and talking with people. The students seemed excited that gave the interview however I later ran into two others who were a little bit less excited. I guess it all depends. Just be polite, honest, and seriously...RELAX!! It is just talking to other people, not a test. Remember that they interview about 600 but offer 400+ acceptances. If you have an interview they obviously want you so just relax and you will be accepted. " Report Response
