What are your general comments?

"I was definitely impressed by this school, more than I had hoped to be. The only doubt I have moving forward is the very high OOS tuition. They definitely don't try to shock and awe you during the interview day. They're more of a "here is what we are and what we've got - take it or leave it" style, but the interviewer was very nice and the students were very forthcoming. I actually appreciate this, personally...it's a bit more of a 'real' look." Report Response
