What was the most difficult question?

"What does mind/body/spirit mean to you. It's something I've given a lot of thought to over the years...but even though it's still hard to articulate the concept of ''spirit'' I think." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"website, viewbook, read over my secondary" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The enthusiasm of the faculty and admissions staff. The good lunch! The many opportunities to ask questions. Their choice to not flagrantly sell the school, but make us aware that they are looking for a *very* particular student. Such an approach is better for all parties involved." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The revelation at the end that the class is ''full''. Talk about a heartbreaker. I know spots will open and students will change their minds...but ouch!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was the best interview experience I've been on yet. I've let offers expire just so I can have a shot at this school, and I'm really stretching the offers of another to wait and see if I'm lucky enough to go to Mesa! The lunch was good, the students there seem very happy, Phoenix is a great place to live with lots of culture and opportunities to be outdoors, and the school is a visionary creation. That said, you really need to be signed on with their philosophy to be happy here. If you don't really care about catering to underserved populations, especially ethnic populations, this isn't the school for you. If you have any experience in public health, this school is a godsend!" Report Response
