What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was extremely nice and accommodating. I was very nervous when I first got there (as this was my first interview) but Dean Lott came in and told us to relax, and that we all posses the qualities that she was looking for. She said to view the day as if we were interviewing them to see if the school was a right fit for us. We got to speak with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year students, all of whom were very nice and had wonderful things to say about OCPM. I don't know why OCPM has a bad wrap on SDN because the school seemed to be one of the best. The location also seemed nice with a low cost of living and safe neighborhoods in close proximity of the school. They've updated everything and all of their facilities are top notch in terms of technology." Report Response
