What impressed you positively?

"Dr Haight was awesome and funny! The student we met was sooo enthusiastic about the school (as was the dean) - it was contagious." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wasn't that thrilled with that part of the Bay area- I had been to San Fran before and loved it- Vallejo and Mare Island are a different story! Plus, I was interviewing for Las Vegas, and not being able to see the school is a little frustrating." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I don't think I knew the class size would only be 75 for Vegas- small, but makes you think they are hand-picking you!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I actually liked the panel interview- it was 4 students and 3 interviewers- a clinician, a PhD, and a rabbi- head of student life. They each asked their questions of us- it really wasn't bad. Most were to clarify our application or tell more about ourselves. We had really gotten the chance to get to know our fellow interviewees, so it wasn't competitive at all- I was trying to root them on! Everyone was so nice, I wanted them to do well. We had had a great discussion before even going in to interview, so I knew it wouldn't be bad. The questions themselves were a little stressful at times, but really not bad. Overall the staff seemed great and the students seemed to like it. If they do as good a job on the school in Las Vegas it will be awesome." Report Response
