What are your general comments?

"I preferred LSU-New Orleans. NOLA is much more organized. Their staff is much more polite and helpful, complete with nice folders filled with pertinent information for applicants. The whole Shreveport program is in complete disarray, complete with emails from the Admissions office in which the font of the type changes in mid-sentence. The whole operation seemed unpolished and unsure of their new module-based program, which was explained vaguely at best. The students leading the tours, when asked to elucidate on the module-based training, shrugged and said "I dunno. it's okay, I guess." Hardly a vote of confidence!" Report Response
