What impressed you negatively?

"Finaid presentation was a little bit cut-and-dry (kind of corny, but very informative...except the lady didn't really seem to want to help out too much.) Also, confusing to get around. I spent ~ 20 minutes just trying to locate the admissions office. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Amazing day. Nothing was very stressful. I feel really good about it just b/c i was really able to talk about healthcare and ethical issues that mattered to me. I also had an interview with the asst director for admissions, and that interview was definitely a bit more stressful. But he was really nice - just the questions were a bit more pointed. They really, really stress ethics and leadership at this school. I'd attend in a heartbeat if I got so lucky..." Report Response
