What impressed you positively?

"The students were very helpful and seem to be pleased with their experiences thus far. The campus seemed to be very nice and quiet, although they did have a block party in the afternoon. In all, it seemed like a close-knit family atmosphere." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There were times between interviews when there was nothing for us to do. A tour and lunch were provided but there was a lot of empty time otherwise." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Tuition is increasing by 15% next year; to stay on campus, you should reserve a spot "yesterday"; the acceptance range list is approximately all 500 interviewees. I'm not really hurt that I didn't find out this information before hand, but I'm glad they told us. Better late than never, I guess." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Both interviews went very well. My first was very special in that the fire alarm went off about 15 minutes after we started. We continued the interview, though, as we walked down the stairs and briefly outside. At lunch we also talked with first year students. Due to the high number in my group, the student interviews were not one-on-one as I expected. Instead we went around the room and asked questions in a very orderly fashion. I left Nashville feeling very good about my interviews." Report Response
