What are your general comments?

"Overall, this interview experience was terrible. The students seemed happy enough, although one of the tour guides said she was really mad when she got there and realized they were on probation (they hadn't told the students because they were appealing the decision). Also, I live in new york city, so i am accustomed to bad areas, but north philadelphia was terrible. two blocks away from the campus there are boarded up buildings all over the place and the train station was extremely sketchy, making my travel experience less than ideal.
