What impressed you positively?

"When I arrived I was greeted by a very professional administrator, given a personalized itinerary for the day, a bottle of water, and pack of cookies. The facilities were the best that I have ever seen (even after interviewing at Midwestern and a few other newer schools). Every lecture is video recorded and posted online so that you can go back and watch any portion of it again. The faculty were very professional and inviting. They definitely maintained the proper student/faculty relationship, but they made it clear that they are there to help you." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?
