"The area is simply beautiful, Biddeford/Saco has a cool old-town feel, student population seemed very diverse, very nice facilities" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour guide was enthusiastic, but it didn't seem like he knew a lot. He kind of ''restrained'' the tour a bit. While tour guides at a couple other schools were eager to bring us into any room they could to show us the facilities, we had to ask to go into lecture halls, etc. Interview seemed a little unorganized and the Dean of Admissions (whoever he was) did not seem very excited to be there that day (I think he had a cold)" Report Response

"UNECOM is on the same campus as an udnergraduate university. I guess I knew that, but wasn't really expecting it Housing is often hard to get and keep since it is seasonal. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"GREAT interview. The entire day put UNECOM easily into my top 2 schools. The students were by far the most diverse crowd of any school I've interviewed at so far and also some of the nicest yet. The interview went well. I was asked some odd and possibly difficult questions, but somehow came up with great answers. I felt as though the interviewers were forcing honesty more than the other schools. After the tour and interview the unorganization kicked in a bit again. I had the impression that we all would eat a lunch together but many people just kind of left and some of us went to the university cafeteria, which was crowded at that time, but had actually really decent food. I went out that night in Biddeford/Saco and had fun, but am a little concerned about having fun outside of school long-term (the outdoor activity scene is great, worried about commercial type stuff). Overall, the school had its pros and very few cons, but it had a great feel in general." Report Response
