What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That TUCOM follows the sabbath, and that the panel interview isn't 4 of them on one of me (as I saw on this website before). The interview is actually 4 of them on 4-5 inteviewers. They make the decision on whether to accept/reject one week after the interview - from that date you have two weeks to accept/reject the offer. If you accept, it is a $2000 deposit to hold your spot." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The insides of the school have been completely remodeled - and if the outside looked as good the school would be at the top of my list. The upside is that Napa is 10 min north (incredible wine) and SF is 30 min south (amazing city)" Report Response
