What impressed you negatively?

"Dress code. There is someone who monitors the dress code. Mandatory attendance. And the only nice students were the ones who had lunch with us. No other students said ''hi'' or were friendly, like at other schools. The interview consisted of one guy talking for 3 hours, and was extremely boring. We didn't really get to socialize with other students or interviewees (I enjoyed this part at the other interviews). We looked through apt guides at apts. And he talked down the area surrounding the school. Very disappointing. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the lunch was not very fulfilling, and I should have eaten more before I went to the interview. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I arrived, was put in a room with other interviewees. The first speaker told us about the Primary Care Scholars Program, and was humorous. The second speaker spoke from 8:30-lunch (12ish), with the two 15-minute sessions from Fin. Aid & Activities. We were called for our interviews. My interviewees were not very friendly, nor did they have a sense of humor. It didn't appear that they had any idea of who I was or what I had done (my file was nowhere in sight). I was asked the standard 9 questions that were not personal, and I didn't feel they received a good idea of who I was. I was disappointed with the mandatory dress code and attendance. I like freedom, and at this point in our career, I think it should be allowed. I was basically put off from this school because of the interview. Very disappointing. The school is very good, and has flexibility in learning. " Report Response
