What was the most interesting question?

"Question #2" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

""Why AZCOM?"...besides the location (not to far from Southern CA) and they seem to do well on the boards, I really didn't like the school. So when they asked this I had some trouble answering...don't let it discourage you though since "liking" a school is very much personal preference and doesn't have too much to do with the school itself!"

"Facilities were new, the day was fairly organized, the presentation on financial aid was helpful" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
