What impressed you positively?

"Everything - I thought the parking lot was easy to find from the map and I enjoyed the "long" tour of the campus. The facilities, simulators, technology, and students were awesome. Also, Dr Hall spent 30 minutes with us answering questions prior to the interviews/tours, and was great - very honest and informative. Also impressed by the student organizations and opportunities."

What impressed you negatively?

"Really nothing. If I had to pick something, it would be that we have to wait until mid-March for an acceptance/rejection/waitlist letter (I hope my patience holds out that long!)." Report Response

What are your general comments?
