What impressed you negatively?

"The campus is isolated, only transit is the commuter rail. Students indicated that unless you live along the rail line, it is necessary to have a car. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Don't rely on taxis! I tried to use them twice, neither time did they show up, the first time they got lost, the second, I don't even know. Fortunately I hitched rides.

Maybe it's better to stay in Boston and take the rail to Grafton in the morning- then you can walk or get a ride with campus police." Report Response
