Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there would be a clinic built on campus in the near future as well as a new fitness center. Not sure I care about knowing it ahead of time, but it was awesome to learn while I was there. I also couldn't have imagined how much I would love the setting of the school. I love that area, but even my imagination had not done it justice." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Our interview day was shortened because it was the Friday before Christmas and the undergrads were already on break (thus, no lunch). For that reason, the day was pretty short and sweet. I was impressed that Dr. Stowers spent so much time with us, and I loved the fact that the faculty came in and chatted with us during ''waiting'' times. This was a truly unique experience that I loved as we got to further discuss the school with them and what their vision is for the school. The interview itself was very relaxed and conversational. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience." Report Response
