What are your general comments?

"My experience was very frustrating. I ran into some bizzare challenges where in any other world it would have gone smoothly. For example, getting a cab driver to and from the airport was insanely hard. Also, I wish I had known the lack of ties the college of pharmacy has to the UNC hospital & research triangle. The impression I got was that it doesn't really give you any advantage except for proximity. " Report Response
