What are your general comments?

"It was decent overall. There were a couple of student life slideshows that were a waste of time -- they were basically a bunch of photos from orientation, with people doing 3-legged races and other ''team-building'' activities, and didn't tell me anything at all about the school. The tour was really short, because there are only two buildings (and a clinic in a trailer). My interview was definitely the most enjoyable part of the day." Report Response
