What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were nice and there seemed to be a broad range of post-doctoral programs." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The staff was extremely arrogant and boasted to rather than informed candidates. The PBL curriculum seems more an excuse to take people's money while not offering basic services one should expect such as professors, books, required and suggested reading. Not only do you not get any of these, but you will be charged the nations highest tuition...brilliant....The student who I talked to openly told me NOT to attend this school." Report Response

"This school was highly overrated and I would not go there." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview was long and involved a group problem-solving exercise..there were too many people at the interview itself...but when we divided up it was a smaller, more manageable group. I actually thought the interview was creative, but the school was unimpressive and the students seemed very unhappy and unsure of their skills." Report Response
