What impressed you positively?

"It's great the San Antonio is digitally converted and is an excellent school, but I tried to look at the little things. I made sure I observed the students there and see how they acted towards each other and if they seemed stressed. They loved it and were laid back. Both a plus in my book. Don't want to go to a place where I'm stressing out all the time." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They really try to make you feel welcome. Dr. Cappelli had some really awesome advice. He said to use this interview as an opportunity for you to also "interview" the school to see if you could see yourself going to school there. (Hence carefully observing current students as previously noted)" Report Response

What are your general comments?
