What impressed you positively?

"Portland is a great city! Great public transportation, and the school is almost finished with a bunch of new construction. Their graduates are ranked very highly in terms of clinical skills, and students seemed to really like both the school and the area." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There was no real ''tour'', per se. We had lunch with a large group of students, who were very honest about the school's positives and negatives, and one of them showed us around the building a little bit afterwards. They also gave us tickets to ride up and down on the new aerial tram to the brand new gym that was just built. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the school is so disconnected from the rest of the city...it's up on a giant hill. The view is great, but there's no parking up there, so using public transportation is a must." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Both of my interviewers were kind of stiff, neither was very conversational, which made me kind of nervous at the start. The buildings there are built into the hill, so it can be very difficult to figure out what floor you are on (sometimes you walk in to a building on the 9th floor). I managed to find my interviews without getting lost, but the directions were about half a page long, and a few people did get lost. Overall, the interviews were a little stiff, but the school looks great. Great buildings, great city, and the students seemed happy." Report Response
