My overall experience has been awesome. The counselors are very friendly and approachable. They are easy to talk to, and the professors are helpful and open to answering any questions. They want to see you succeed in the classroom and outside in the real-world.

I'm currently working through the graduate admissions process for Wilkes University. The staff has been immensely supportive in providing additional information in regards to financial aid and private scholarships/loans. They've done an amazing job personalizing the experience although I'm sure they have a myriad of applicants to their MBA program each year.
