"nothing" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"everything. There is a level of professionalism that is expected from a school when the student is to be paying upwards of 40k a year in tuition. The facilities were horrible in comparison to other schools with equivalent tuition. The faculty seemed indifferent during the interview, and the students when asked questions were not able to answer them, and even went on to say they felt as if they were being kept in the dark about many things. The expansion will not help anyone who is applying within the next 2-4 years. The 3 buildings are subpar at best. It did not feel like a medical school at all. There was no effort by the staff to sell the school they just seemed like robots going about sticking to the schedule, and that was their main concern throughout the day." Report Response
