What impressed you positively?

"not much" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Savannah is a dump (historic district aside)- very poor and broken down area. So are the people. It is sad. Realtors repeatedly told me, "Savannah is dangerous- you have to live on the islands to be safe." Those islands mean a 25-30 minute drive each way to campus. It was disconcerting that they had nothing substantive to say about their program except that it is an accelerated program. Heard almost nothing about the academic aspect of this place- why they do things the way they do, or what sort of successes they've had. It just seemed like a sales pitch, to me." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"What an awful place Savannah would be to live. Everyone says it- it's a great place to visit, but not at night and it's not a place to live." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Savannah is not a place you want to live. A commute to and from will consume an hour of your study time each day unless you live in or near the hood." Report Response
