What impressed you negatively?

"it was sad to find out the new dental building wont be done until 2013 and the first 2 yrs for the inaugural class will be spent in the ECU med school. school tour seems to be anticlimactic since you mostly just tour the med school/hospital. but, the dental building will be really nice when it is complete." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"where to park. lots of construction going on in the area and the map they send isn't 100% accurate. i drove around the night before to get a feel for the area, so i was prepared in the morning. 2 others in my interview group were late because they got lost trying to find the parking lot, which is kind of hidden in the back." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"already said before, but very very friendly, faculty and staff. a serious, but not super intensive interview. group activity - everyone wants to know about this. you play with ipads and macbook for an hour or so. they are going to really integrate technology and classroom activities, which could be interesting" Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"cut out lunch and perhaps streamline the interview process. holding the interview till 2 pm seems a little long, especially concerning that the actual interview portion only takes an hour or so. also, minor detail, but parking passes should be emailed/mailed to applicants, that way there isn't the awkward walk up to the building, grab a parking pass, walk back to your car, and then back up to the building again. not so fun when its raining."
