What are your general comments?

"I got there at 10 am, my interview was at 11 am with Dean Kuperman (thus the stress level), who is the Dean of Education Affairs, or something. I ended up meeting with two other deans as well, who were fantastic. Kuperman's interview was intense, he was very inquisitive, in an interesting way, asking a lot of philisophical and complicated questions about my work. Really a great man though. Meet with Dean Kerrigan, she's fantastic. I met with her after the lunch and tour. The lunch was good - don't forget to pick up all utensils and napkins before you leave the cafeteria (which is being rebuilt and you can't eat there), so that you don't have to walk back. The students were really content, congenial, and the atmosphere was really great. One thing that stands out at AE is the clinical experience, it is top-notch. If you've done clinical work before, the standard third year might be all repreat, but at AE you'd actually learn much more. The apartments are great, the living environment really nice, and the classrooms are nice too. The diversity in students is decent, not exceptional. " Report Response
