What impressed you negatively?

"We were divided into two groups. I was group B and had to take the writing portion first. After that we went on the school tour and returned to the building for the interview. I had to wait 15 min before my interviewer came to get me. It sure felt like 15days isolated in the desert. Luckily there was a third yr student talking to us the whole time." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I heard stories from my friend telling how bad western is. But to my surprise, it was the opposite. Everyone was nice (well most schools are the same in this). The room is high-tech, and I heard from the students that we'll be high-tech once we graduate. I was placing USC over this school for a mile, but after the interview I think western deserves more merit. Overall, the experience was great and I will not regret if I have to go to western."
