What impressed you positively?

"The students LOVED the school. They also ALL talked positively about living in Las Vegas. The clinic has huge spaces for each station and they are paperless! They have everything backed up 3-fold so there don't seem to be computer issues-the bugs have been worked out. The students have influence on the direction of the curriculm and have a real sense of worth. The faculty treats them as equals. Every note and textbook is in electronic form. You spend classes discussing, not scribbling notes! What an awesome program!" Report Response

"It's in Las Vegas." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There are two interviews; one with a student and one with a faculty member. They each give you a score of 1-5 and have equal input on your admission. They are also big into statistics." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everyone was very open. They outlined their place in the admission process and statistics for admission. We were breifed on Financial Aid stuff (really boring-if you've been through one interview, you've already heard everything they will say). Next came a briefing on their curriculum and a school tour. I liked having the interview at the end of the day. It allowed me to have questions ready that were relevant and informed. My husband and I spent a few hours looking at neighborhoods and found they all look alike. We come from Seattle where there is topography. There are no reference points when driving through town...but it's sunny!" Report Response
