What are your general comments?

"PCOM was my number one choice, followed closely by NOVA. I still hope I get in and will go, no doubt. However, I didn't feel welcome at PCOM as I was at all the other schools. Maybe bc they know they are good so they don't need to go all out to impress you. The admissions staffs seemed not to care about the interviewees at all. However, I can't complain about the facilities or the curriculum or the students. They all were great. So, I can't let the little things the admissions staffs did deter me from going to PCOM, IF I got accepted. This was my last interview bc I Got in at NOVA. So, it's either PCOM or NOVA. Good luck, everyone!!!!" Report Response
