What are your general comments?

"Overall a great experience. The campus is very new and everyone is very friendly. There are plans for expansion of the campus with its own hospital (which of course will take 20 years), but it is all very exciting. The day starts at 8:45am, with a 15min orientation. then from 9:00am-10:00am we get a overview of the curriculum, UA-phoenix works in a block schedule format. Faculty interviews are from 10:00-11:00am but, the curriculum overview went over by about 20min. Which wasn't a big deal because interview. normally only take 30min. We then took a tour of the campus (really small since there is only 24 students), and had lunch with a current student. " Report Response
