What impressed you positively?

"The students were very personable and friendly. The campus isn't as ghetto as some might make it seem." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"One of my interviewers (Dr. Martin) seemed prejudiced against me. I felt he attacked me personally during the interview just to get a rise out of me. Neither of my interviewers seemed interested in me. When I asked the question "What makes Western special? Why should I choose Western?" They skirted the issue, avoided the question, and changed the subject. It seems the school is having administration problems right now. It also felt as though they were having trouble filling seats in the class. At this late date, I expected them to have the class nearly full, but only half the seats had been filled.
