What impressed you positively?

"Students were all very frienly and seemed to love the school, (not just the tour guides), nice campus, faculty approachability, quality of residency placement opportunities, dean and staff appeared to be interested in the students as individuals" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"School is near the I285/I85 exchange, Atlanta traffic sucks... Left the interview at 4:30 and spent over an hour in traffic... only went 15 miles during that time...apparently this is typical. School is secluded, you would never know it was in the middle of Atlanta... normally this would be a good thing, but using public transport is out of the question... you could not live here without a car. Too bad for a big city like Atlanta." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the reviews here are true... There really is no reason to be stresses. I was so stressed, and I didn't need to be." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Group introductions with other interviewees and introduction to the dean and staff. Then we split up and toured the campus with a student. This was a good chance to ask student lots of questions. Then a one-on-one interview with a faculty member. Then a one-on-one interview with a P3 student. Then a sample essay on an ethical topic (see the most difficult question asked, above), then open time to mingle, talk with dean, etc. " Report Response
