What impressed you positively?

"The students were very personable. Even though the class has 200, they seem to really know everyone really well in their class. This is not a cut-throat school. The students are even known to hand down textbooks to the next class for virtually no cost. Their curriculum is great. The previous poster said that the students didn't really know about the 3rd & 4th year option to spend time in Austin. I believe this is because all the students which lead the tour were beginning 2nd years. They did have a student panel with 2nd to 4th year students, but no one asked them a question about the option to spend time at Breckenridge in Austin. The great thing about the curriculum is that you begin school earlier during your 2nd year. This allows all the students a 6 week time period at the end of their 2nd year to just study for the boards. I believe this is why their pass rate is improving, and I believe it will continue to be high." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I think this self directed studying is great. However, I think there are some people who don't learn well this way. If this is not how you can learn (you like information given to you straight up) you might not like this format. However, I think it is a very great way of learning & would work well with how I learn." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It didn't rain, but looked like it would so I would recommend anyone interviewing later to bring an umbrella." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This is a school that is selling itself. Instead of the feeling... prove to them why they should accept you, it is quite the opposite. The interview is basically them selling the school to you. This attitude spills out into everything else. This is a great school, and I sense with all the positives about it... applicants who appreciate the friendly atmosphere will be placing it as their top choice in the match." Report Response
