What are your general comments?

"As others have said, very impressive school. The only downside to the school is location. Dothan is nice filled with nice people. That being said, you won't find much else besides restaurants/some shopping/medical establishments. Fundamentally not too different from major cities but stark rural contrast just 1-2 miles away makes it seem like an odd place with not much else going on." Report Response
