What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are amazing, especially Children's Hospital. The classrooms are new and beautiful and well-lit study rooms with couches abound. The school obviously pampers its students. The class I sat on was very interesting. The student gym was great." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The pizza party the night before was great! There were definitely a wide variety of breakfast options, though it was not the most delicious meal I've ever had. We were given our schedules, and then a brief welcome and financial aid talk. Then everyone was pretty much out on their own schedule. My interview was early, and then I had a ton of free time from then until the tour, so I sat in on part of a class. I had actually already seen everything along the tour, because my interview was all the way across campus, at the end of the indoor tunnels. So its true, bring comfy shoes. Lunch was delicious and both students and faculty members showed up. Oh! As for the one-on-one lunches, they only happen certain days a week. On the busier days, they lump everyone together. That was the end of my day, and a bunch of us took the metrolink back to the airport. Definitely take metrolink unless its really late." Report Response
