What are your general comments?

"great day!! I really went into it not even wanting to apply to this school but once i was there i loved it:) They have an awesome new curriculum that offers loads of free time and great clinical experience your first year!! Dorms are cheap and very close. There are tons of places to study, the students rave about their teachers, admissions staff is so nice, just overall an awesome place. The interview day was planed out well. This was my third interview and it was nice to see that the day was actually scheduled out for us including the dean coming to talk to us (very funny by the way). The student interviewer couldn't be nicer, she answered all my questions and really promoted the school..we ended up talking for over an hour. Overall great day!!" Report Response
