What impressed you positively?

"I really like the school and the area that it's in. I thought the presenters were funny and kept things moving along as we waited to be called for individual interviews. It seems to me that the school is very focused on the student's success. % of students passing the boards on the first try. The expansions of the school. I like the idea of a dress code- I think it'll make sure everyone is ready to go in the morning instead of groggy and half asleep. (Of course I say that now...)" Report Response
