"Everyone there was friendly and completely honest. They didn't hide the fact that the school is not fully accredited and that based on its location, it may not the the first choice for a lot of students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview itself was not what I expected. I still don't know if the interviewer was genuinely rude or if the actions displayed were an act." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I learned that not all schools gain full accreditation when the first class graduates. Apparently the dean of the school was on some accreditation committees and she noted that the accreditation process is more stringent. Loma Linda and UCSD did not receive its accreditation. Also, after you complete the program, you still have to complete 50 or so more hours on your own." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was calm and sociable the whole day, even during the interview. Because I've been on a lot of interviews, I wasn't really phased a great deal when the interviewer wasn't as cordial. All the comments posted by other earlier by other students appear to be accurate from my account. My performance could have been better under different circumstances (like different interviewers), but it is what it is." Report Response
