"the admissions counselor was very unprofessional, he blatantly told us over and over again that we would all be accepted on the spot. after each student introduction, he also told each student how they would be present on campus. He was bubbly and well intentioned but it came off poorly, especially if one was rejected it also took 7 months for PCOM to review my application, without ever even sending a completion status" Report Response
