What impressed you positively?

"Sim lab was new and beautiful! Amy Knowles is SO friendly. Leading us from place to place, she'd say "come with me, my friends! Follow me, m'dears!" The professor that interviewed me was a character (hilarious and very nice)! He kept on reminding me "I'm here to help you, so sit back and relax. Don't be nervous" and he kept on re-assuring me throughout the interview "I like you!" He was a great interviewer and I really enjoyed being interviewed him him. We also saw him at one of the clinics during our tour. He saw me in the crowd and made eye contact, gave me a wink and a thumbs up, and started waving at me. Our tour guide (Amy Knowles) greeted him when she saw him waving at us and our whole group waved back at him. His personality really left a very favorable impression on me. Also, the diverse student body is great." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Other parts of the school (not the Bluestone area or the new sim labs) seemed much older and crowded/cramped. At the end of the interview, we had lunch at the cafeteria, but nobody told us that it was the end of the interview. After lunch, all us students just looked at each other and asked "is it over?" Also, as we were taking the tour, one student sang to us "don't come here...save your money and grief...la la la" " Report Response
