What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were by far the best that I have seen. Every student I met (including someone on my flight to Denver) loved the school and had nothing but good things to say about it. The student that I stayed with let me look through his curriculum overview and notes, I am really excited about the curriculum here. This was also my first time in KC and it seems like it would be a great place to live." Report Response

"That I would like the school as much as I did." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"As has been said multiple times, the interview is very relaxed. My interviewers were very friendly and I was able to joke around with them (I hope that's a good thing). They match you up with interviewers that match your interests and experiences, so be ready for a very open-file interview. The tour guides were enthusiastic, but candid when we asked what they didn't like. The area is not as bad as it's made out to be, and actually has a pretty nice view of the KC skyline. Overall, I was very impressed and can't wait to hear if I got in." Report Response
