What impressed you positively?

"People were genuinely friendly, it felt like they were actually happy we were there instead of being a burden. The campus is in a beautiful part of Boston and most of the students live right next to the school. You need an ID to enter the school so it's very safe/chill. I asked the students if they felt comfortable leaving all their stuff for a second and they all said they do it all the time. The clinic isn't huge, but it's very nice and the lab for the students is brand-spanking new. It seems like a very tight-knit community and all the money/resources they have go towards you and not other programs." Report Response
