What impressed you positively?

"Nice people overall. Also, the availability of affordable housing close to the school is a big plus." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was disappointed with the students' inability to express themselves well using words. Most of them kept inserting "it's like" and "you know" all the time which was annoying. My hotel: Holiday Inn Express -- after staying at other places after this one, I can say it's pretty good and they serve breakfast in the morning. It cost me about $100 to stay there which feels expensive now. Maybe it's the hotel's location, but I somehow didn't see anything special about it. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the KCI (or MCI) airport and its surrounding area would be so empty so early in the evening. Also that when you are told that your $18 shuttle will come in 15-20 minutes, it really means closer to an hour." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The guy that met us in the morning (vice president of admissions, I think) kept describing himself using the term "fatherly figure." It sounded a little creepy. He also said something about his wife working in one of the offices and how they communicate with each other about the students and discuss their problems. This was supposed to be a positive thing, but I worry that students may not have much privacy as a result of this "family-oriented" atmosphere. " Report Response
