What impressed you positively?

"The ease of the interview and the communication with the lady organizing the interviews. There was some confusion after my interview (they couldn't find the person I was supposed to be "released" by) and I received a very nice apology email from the lady the next day." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"If I am remembering correctly, even though the satellite campus is only running for the first year, about half of the faculty teaches at the Ashburn location. That is to say, even though your class is in Winchester you still have teachers teaching from the other campus via their link-up device." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The Ashburn campus is only up and running for the 1st year curriculum. They are currently working on making it a TRUE satellite campus. I was told that if I attended this campus (Ashburn is closer to my family) I'd have to move to Winchester after the 1st year. It is a two hour drive from Ashburn to Winchester, fyi." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I feel it was a waste of time and money to travel to Shenandoah (from the Western US) for a 1/2 hour interview. Think carefully about attending this interview if you don't live nearby. Also, the deposit is $1000. Their site states that you have 3 weeks to make a deposit after acceptance. Their official correspondence to me now states that it is due in March (I interviewed in November)." Report Response
