What are your general comments?

"I liked the school more than I thought I would. I had never been to the Bronx and did not find it as bad as people say. I had lunch and then a tour and then an interview. My interviewer was a talker and took me on another tour so I was with him for 2 hours. There is no specific meeting to talk and ask all your questions so do your research beforehand. The students were friendly and helpful and seemed happy about their decision to go to AECOM." Report Response
