What impressed you positively?

"The school's facilities. Very high tech and nice. Really big campus." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The directions to the place! I think the school is prestigious, but it aims toward pleasing their area. For example, they teach about native american remedies. I don't know how much use that would be for me. Also, most of the people that were interviewed came from UNM so they already know some of the staff and students. As an out of state, I felt left out already." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they were just serving bagels. I didn't eat much anyways." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewers were young, hip and so friendly. They seemed really curious about my personality, and I think the questions you get will be different from whoever you get. Some people said that the interviewers tried to kind of "break" them when they saw a bad grade in their transcript, so they were quite inquisitive if you have a bad grade. So be prepared to answer it. Other than that, they kind of had a normal guideline I think of typical questions. The cost is low after the first year if you're out of state (18100). It makes me want to go here, but certain things kind of throw me off about the school. I don't know. It seems good on paper, but I am scared. A lot of the students kind of expressed that the school seemed a lot harder then their undergrad, but I wonder if thats because they are from UNM." Report Response
