What impressed you positively?

"Their dean of student affairs announced that their first-time pass rate for the NAPLEX and Juris exams was greater than 98% for the most recent class. This is quite a bit higher than older statistics posted on the Web. Everyone involved with the interview process was very friendly and open to answer questions." Report Response

"The facilities were dated, especially the lab we were shown on the tour." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing. If you read the reviews posted on this site from the most recent application cycle (August 2007 on), you will not be surprised on interview day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Do realize that there will be 15-20 other candidates during your interview. The dean of student affairs and his staff talk for close to an hour. You get short break before breaking up into a smaller group for a 30 minute campus tour with a student (most of the student representatives were P2 on this date). After the tour you will rotate for three different interviews. Two of the interviews are 1-1 with either a faculty member/alumni and then by a student. The third interview is when you meet back in the conference room to 'mingle.' Make no mistake; this is just as important as your 1-1 interview. Make sure you talk to everyone in the room, including your fellow candidates. Be sure to prepare questions for your interviewers." Report Response
