“The communications through the process were incredible. From the moment I was invited to the interview to the moment the program started I had very clear and consistent communication from the staff. As I was applying, I was invited to several different events that were very clearly described — I knew exactly where to go and what to expect. The coordination between the staff was impeccable and gave me a sense of the program’s overall excellence.”
