"I loved this experience, and I loved the student ambassadors, but the admissions office here was enough to deter me from ever accepting an offer. They were disorganized, and I felt as though they wasted our time. Ask them (first thing in the morning), about any wait-lists, because they WILL NOT tell you." Report Response
