What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Haight is very funny and spent some time with us explaining the interview process (although very little time compared to the past). I thought the group interview with my peers would be intimidating but it actually went well and was fun to hear about what some of the other candidates had been up to. I was also happy to hear they are switching to an integrated curriculum." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I did not care for the facilities. I was a little small, and run down looking. The students had just started the block exam week so the tour guide was extremely stressed and basically knew nothing about the school. He kept asking if we had questions but could not answer any of them? Mare island is a little creepy and Vallejo is not the nicest area. Esthetics aside I am sure the education is good but I know I would not be happy there." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the students where on a block week of exams. No one wanted to take the time to talk or answer any questions...they where all way to stressed out. I would have scheduled my interview at a different time. I also wish I had known that once you are excepted you have only 2 weeks to decide and then you have to put down a $2000 nonrefundable deposit to hold your seat...most schools give you until December when you interview at this time of the year." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was good. I was excepted so it must have gone well. " Report Response
