What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Mejia was great! She stayed with us for most of the day which says a lot. Most of the schools the director give a presentation and maybe a farewell and thats all you see of them. Tour guide was outgoing and made sure to talk when everyone was around and able to hear her not just in the halls when the from few could hear. Lunch was great!! (although I hadnt had breakfast and wish it would have been a little earlier to break up the day) " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"HUGE!! Seems very easy to get lost in the mix there. Due to the large class size, 2 days a week you have class 8-1 and two days a week 2-7. Small point and not representative of the school but the day ended with lunch and the admissions people werent there and never gave a farewell speech or anything that I was used to hearing along the lines of" I wish you luck in making this big decision and thanks again for making the trip"" Report Response
