What impressed you positively?

"The students seemed to have neutral or positive attitudes about the school. The facilities are clean and new. Their plans for an academic medical center are bold (we'll see if they happen according to schedule, my guess is no)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school is located in an industrial park in Elk Grove. The President of the school gave a weird rant about how students should never be advocates because they have one job: to learn. Seemed like he doesn't want students protesting the university admin...weird thing to rant about on interview day. The school is for-profit. You can only take out private loans, and there's no financial aid." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How long it would take them to get back to me post-interview. And their acceptance protocols/paperwork are archaic considering it's a brand new school. Everything needs to be moved online." Report Response
