What are your general comments?

"First, we found out that the Dean, director of admissions and the financial aid officer were not there. Next, the only person on the agenda aside from the interviewers that was actually there was the MPH director who then gave us a sales pitch on the MPH program that is Self-accredited, meaning you may not be able to be apply to some jobs. B/c no one on the agenda was there, they were trying to figure out what to do with us until the interview. The student tour guide was our only outlet to learning about the school. However, even she was in the dark about the new curriculum, the clinical rotations, and the board preparations. The location isn't even appealing (or safe) to me. My purpose of going to the interview went unaccomplished and left still wondering what the heck the school's about. The school definitely didn't have it together to me. " Report Response
