What impressed you negatively?

"More than 50% of the school is mormon. If you're mormon, you'll love it. I'm not, so the school seemed incredibly lacking socially. The highlight of my day is not going to be playing foosball in the lounge. I'm not married, I don't have 3 kids, so I'm not going to be able to fit in with these guys. There are also nearly zero females... 15 in the last class. Again, socially the school is lacking." Report Response
