What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was kind of different- not exactly intimidating, but just acted completely rushed and uninterested. I had to wait over 45 minutes (as he was running late) in a waiting room in the hospital. Got to see more than one person puke on the floor while waiting...kind of unique interview experience. Overall, though, the students were very normal and down to earth. This is a huge plus for me! I like the basic things about the school- grading policy, integrated curriculum, community opportunities. Would be very happy to (eventually) get accepted off the waitlist if possible!" Report Response
