What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are great and everybody was really nice. It was almost kinda scary." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"How there is absolutely nothing to do in Lewisburg. Apparently the students there go to the local bowling alley to have fun. I'm sure if you're used to a small town this wouldn't be a problem, but I've always lived in or close to a big city and I think I'd go stir crazy!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I knew what I was getting into before hand since a friend of mine already goes there. I knew the town was small and out of state tuition was ridiculous. The campus and staff more than make up for it." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The whole process was pretty laid back. Annette Moore who gives the tours is awesome. She was really enthusiastic despite the icy cold weather. The campus and facilities are top notch and the anatomy lab is immaculate. You could barely smell anything due to their high tech ventilation system. I went to the interview thinking I wouldn't really be interested in going to the school because of the location, but I left really considering it as an option. Overall it was a very positive experienc." Report Response
