What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was incredibly friendly. Roger Corbman really put everyone at ease the minute we walked through the main doors. He got through all the information that he needed to and did so in such a relaxed way that everyone listening to him calmed down and began to feel right at home. The students were great...they would stop all that they were doing in order to talk to us when we were on our tour and answer any questions that we had that might not have been answered previously. They seemed genuinely happy to be studying at the school and really wanted us to all to feel at home there. Overall, a great experience and I definitely feel as if I can fit in at TUCOM-NV." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only negative experience that I had was my interview. I didn't feel as if my interviewers wanted to get to know me at all. They only really asked me about my grades and MCAT scores which are 2 things that I can only explain so much. In my answers, I would bring up my volunteer/clinical experiences in hopes that they would start asking about that, but it didn't happen. I also felt as if one of my interviewers didn't really want to be there...I was just really put off by that. I just got frustrated because I traveled a long way and didn't need to be explaining my grades the entire time....that was something that they had on file already. It would have been more beneficial for everyone if they had asked me more about myself and my experiences because that can mean more than grades in the long run." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It was good to learn that even though the school has no on-site housing for students, that most students live within a short distance from the school and within the same area." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"See above... I just wish that they had tried to get to know ME more than they tried to get to know my grades/scores. When they didn't give up on my grades, I started to get frustrated and feel down so I'm not sure how my interview went in the long run." Report Response
