What are your general comments?

"I was overall really impressed with the school - the facilities and the campus were top notch. The day started out with a brief overview of the school and a financial aid presentation. Then, the dean of students came out and asked us who we knew from UNECOM (she knew every person that we responded with!). We were broken up into two groups, one going on the tour and the other staying behind to interview. The interview was really low stress, and mine was with an MS-II and a DO. It was really just a conversation about my file - nothing difficult was asked. I would love to go here!" Report Response
