"The candidness and friendliness of the staff and interviewers during the day. I felt almost no stress and felt like I was just having a conversation with each person I talked to." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing about the school or interview, but I was really turned off by all the family members attending with the interviewees. It's one thing to have your fiance or spouse, but not your siblings and/or parents. That was horribly tacky and I'm sure didn't help the interviewees' chances." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How much walking I would do. I also wish I knew that everyone else would be bringing a portfolio or resume folder/binder. Luckily, I had just asked a family member who lives in Kirksville for a pen and paper and got a folder." Report Response
