What are your general comments?

"I was extremely fortunate to have a friendly, relaxed interviewer (who is one of the school's instructors.) He seemed interested in finding out more about me, and was very engaging (lots of eye contact and active listening.) I checked this site before going to my interview, and prepared for the worst. However, the school is an excellent example of redevelopment, the location is not as bad as many have made it out to be, and don't let the façade of the facilities fool you. The interiors of the buildings are wonderful, the classrooms are area seating with internet connections, and the cadaver lab is outstanding. I did get to talk with one current student (who I happened to run into in the lobby), and she was extremely friendly, and was very happy with her choice to attend this school. Oh, and the armed security guards? The hospital I work at has armed guards, and is in a much rougher area of my city (and we are actually happy to have them to escort us when it gets dark.) The guards at COMP were very friendly and helpful – and personally, I’m always happy to see a school that considers the safety of its students. I was thrilled to find out I was accepted here, and plan on attending. " Report Response
