"I liked the other students who were interviewing." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Everything. The attitude of the school. There doesn't look like there are many patients- you have to find your own. There were like 3 patients in the whole building and we didn't see any students working on patients. You have to do your own cleanings. The school appeared rather empty and did not have the hustle and bustle of the other schools I visited. The facilities are old and the sim lab is not very nice. Not a lot of community service activities in a school who's "motto is serve the underserved." " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They said I wouldn't be getting in this year and told other students the same. They had tons of people interviewing for very few spots. I found it extremely rude to invite people for an interview and waste their time and money and not even have any intention of accepting them. I still haven't heard my decision and it has been well over a month. I wouldn't go there if I was accepted. I didn't see any of the family atmosphere that everyone talked about. Nashville would be a terrible place to live for four years. Don't waste your time and money with this second rate school." Report Response
