What impressed you positively?

"The 3 women i talked to were really sweet ladies. They seemed to be really interested in learning about me." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"This was my first choice school before the interviews...and the interview changed my mind. There was no financial aid presentation or tour of the campus. There wasnt any information on the courses. Also you didnt have any students to hear from. I managed to find a few 2year students and i talked to them during my waiting for the interview. They seemed to really not be impressed with the faculty contributions. They said the faculty care way more about their own research than your learning. This school seems to be more worried about other things than your learning." Report Response
