I just got an overall positive vibe from the whole experience. The school is right next to Lake Forest, which is awesome and has a small beach." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was my favorite interview day of all the schools I've been to. They put you in a room with all the other interviewees and you wait until you are called individually by your interviewer. There is a lot of down time between interviews where everyone sorta just hangs out. Everything about the school is really great, except the tuition. Overall it was a good experience, not stressful at all." Report Response
