What impressed you positively?

"Students and staff are as friendly as stated by past SDNers feedback. They do an awesome job making you feel at ease. Interview portion was more at ease than i expected, but still you should practice to common Q's (see Q1 and Q2). Current students say there are many extracirricular activities to be involved." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"1) Buses not prefered, need car 2)can take it both ways, campus is still growing. New additions are: dining/cafeteria with a "bar" at top level. "clubs" in the city. Quiet place, but can be a good studying atmosphere for some. Plazas and grocery stores are more of driving distance." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Thank goodnes to previous feedbacks! 1) arrive by 12pm because before 12:30pm staff come to gather everyone and walks you to a different building for orientation. They will come back for "stragglers" but let's avoid the panic feeling. 2) morning is still cold 50's, by late morning is when it gets warm 70's. 3)Eat a good breakfast, not too full, but enough to last you till 4pm. School offers cookies and bottled water as snacks. 4) interviews is open file, they refer heavily on your resume." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Split into 3 groups, rotates between writing, tour, and interviews. Grp # is on your name tag, given at beginning of orientation. May want to bring some candy, mint or gum to help calm and refresh yourself. Remember: Breath, Smile, and Chit Chat. =) Good Luck!" Report Response
