What impressed you negatively?

"If I get a accepted and attend then I'll be the 2nd year ever to attend. So the curriculum and schedule all sound great, but since no class has experience 2nd, 3rd, or 4th years as of right now. So a lot of what they presented us with was theoretical information. They also suggested that the average student will spend 6-8 hours a day reading. If you don't like lectures and would rather read than this is a big plus." Report Response
