What are your general comments?

"It seems like this school is lacking in funding. We were told point blank that scholarship money is limited to about $5,000 to $10,000 per student per year (if they even qualify). The facilities look as though they haven't been updated in 30 years; everything from the interview waiting room furniture to the equipment of the student gym look worn and beat down. Anatomy lab was nice, though." Report Response
