What impressed you positively?

"The 3 learning pathways are great; you don't have to sit in lecture for 8hrs a day if you don't want to. The tuition is cheap:$26,000. Dr. Wise went out of his way to make additional arrangements for students to visit labs, sit in on classes, meet with requested staff at the end of the interview day. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Erie is a pretty dreary town, but on the up side you're only there for the first two years. They try tobe very impartial during the interviews, so they don't react to anything you say. It's hard to be relaxed when you're talking to two stones." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There are a lot of negetive postings on SDN about the interview day and the school. I found almost all the alegations to be untrue when I visited. The dress code really isn't that strict, the assigned seating is for purposes of taking attendance and yuo're allowed to switch if you wan to sit somewhere else, the students seemed to be happy. The school puts in a lot of effort to make sure you succeed on the boards. A Kaplan review course included in tuition, and everyone is given 6 weeks to take the course and prepare." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was impressed with the overall experiece. The interview day isn't as structured as it is at other schcools, but they do make special accomodations if you feel you want to know more about something in particular. It nice that they ask everyone the same 9 questions, because you can prepare for them." Report Response
