What impressed you positively?

"Focus of the faculty and school as a whole on the success of the student." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I did not feel comfortable in the interview. Each of my answers were treated as if they were wrong, and each answer was "one up-ed". I was asked if I had experience working long shifts, like 24 hour shifts. When I said I had limited experience, she replied that it would be more than limited experience, it would be constant experience. I got the feeling that she was trying to scare me. I currently live in Chicago, and to start the interview I was told that I do not pronounce the name of the city correctly. I left the interview with the feeling that the interviewers were pesimistic about my answers." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The surrounding area around Pikeville is more developed than I imagined. The school is not in the middle of nowhere. There are many national food chains and stores. This is not the most secluded school I have visisted. I was also suprised that although Pikeville has approx. 7000 residents, the county has closer to 100,000." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall I was pleased with the experience. The students were very open and very helpful. They are truely proud of the school and are ready and willing to lead the school to national notoriety. The faculty was very friendly also, they made themselves available to speak to students on tour, and were familiar with all of the students giving the tour on a first name basis. They are not kidding about the call in 3 days, I got one in 2." Report Response
