What impressed you positively?

"The location is in North Chicago, which is nicely tucked away 30 minutes from downtown. But at the same time, downtown is so close and a great getaway for students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school was kind of disappointing. Nothing spectacular, nothing horrible but seemed really disorganized. The students didn't seem too enthusiastic either. The school lost their accredidation a while back, but have since gotten it back...a reason for concern?" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interview process was disorganized to say the least. The interview group was big with maybe 30-40 students, and they called people in in alphabetical order. I was first, went in for a 30 minute interview, came back into the same conference room, and then had to wait 2 hours for them to go through the whole group and then they called me a gain for my second interview. There were many interviewers, so I didn't understand why things weren't more efficient." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was fine. The interview themselves went fine, but the school didn't impress me. There are no rolling admissions here, so admissions committe meets in December and sends out accptances and rejections in January. I've kind of taken them off my radar after I got a few acceptances. I would not go here if I got in." Report Response
