What impressed you positively?

"Well I got in a car accident (I wasn't driving) on the way to the school so I made it a few minutes late but I called the admissions office and they were VERY understanding and they actually kept checking up on me and gave me advil and the MS III that interviewed me even offered to give me treatment although time did not allow for it. Also, the interviewees were VERY nice and it was really laid back. I was just so stressed because I got severe whiplash from the car accident and had a bad headache throughout the day." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The initial tour that we had was from an administrative guy and he really didn't know a single thing. He gave our group the WRONG information and we didn't even get to go into any classrooms which really sucked. But then when we went back to the office after lunch there was a MS III or IV and he took us on ANOTHER tour and he was AWESOME! Straightened everything out and took us inside rooms, etc..."

What are your general comments?

"I really had a very positive interview experience. I met some really cool guys there and enjoyed it. Except for the fact that the day started off really bad with my car accident everything else went smoothly. Oh one more thing, the cafeteria REALLY sucks. It's one small room. It's laughable."
