What impressed you negatively?

"Wayyyyy too much. The school is essentially a renovated warehouse. The anatomy lab is outdated and only has old projectors to view the lecturer from. There are almost no windows at all, so you are stuck inside what sort of seemed like a prison all day, every day you are there for class. Cafeteria was laughable. OMM lab also was outdated, with only projectors to watch the lecturer from. The library was legitimately the size of a large storage closet. The student who gave us our "campus tour" was an M1 (the interview was in September...) and only had one answer for the 8-10 questions i asked him (not necessarily his fault, but someone more knowledgeable about the school who had been there for more than a month should have been giving the tour.) Also, the interview was only 20 minutes. I flew across the country, spent X hundred dollars, to sit down and talk with two people for 20 minutes. What a joke. During lunch when speaking with the student panel, every single one of them said they chose the school because of its "location", that was the most positive thing any of them said about it. Also, lastly, if you're still reading, if accepted to the school you have only 2 weeks to send in your $2,000 deposit. That's absurd. What I got from that and the rest of the day in general was that they know that is no one's first choice (unless maybe you're from Vegas area), so they trap you by giving you almost no time to make a decision about sending them a ton of money that you will not get back if you decide to go somewhere else later."

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not to go." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I got waitlisted, which i was actually thrilled to hear because of their B.S. deposit time/amount. What's sad is if i got accepted literally anywhere else, i wouldn't go there. And if i only got accepted there, I'd go knowing I was going to transfer after year 1." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Change a lot. 1. "We believe a 20 minute interview is enough to get to know you." A) No, it's not B) That's so disrespectful to students who travel from so far and spend so much money to be there for the day. I could have had a skype interview and you would have gotten the same impression of whether or not i was a "normal person". 2. The lady leading the interview day, Ms. Kate Snow if I remember correctly, was incredibly kind, personable, talkative and knowledgeable about the school and surrounding area (being a local, duh). She deserves a raise. With that being said, she should not be on the admissions board. I understand why it would seem like a good idea for her to be after talking to interviewees in the more relaxed setting throughout the day, but here's what really happened. Once she told everyone she was on the admissions board and would be helping make decisions, every student there immediately changed their demeanor and became a suck-up towards her. Talking to the other interviewees throughout the day and then seeing them talk to her or in a group with her was a night and day difference. Everyone felt fake and it kind of felt like i was in a play the entire time i was there because of this." Report Response
