What are your general comments?

"KSU is a great school, and the fact that they have a traditional program is really appealing to me. I like having everything organized and PBL does not sound fun or informative to me, so K state has a program that is in line with me. Most expensive option that I applied to this cycle, but I love the program and the faculty so if I get accepted I would seriously consider going." Report Response
