What impressed you positively?

"You get money for international electives, the students were so relaxed and happy (one said his only complaint was that Einstein was "too much fun"), close to NYC, collegial atmosphere, nice lecture halls, true pass/fail, cool interest groups" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't like the Bronx too much, but you can take a bus/subway to the city without too much difficulty, and one girl told me the Italian food in the area is amazing. I feel like it was a really dorm-like feel in the apartments in the sense that they pair you up with random people . . . but the apts were super cheap and huge. Lots of the students are married apparently. The match list wasn't overly exciting to me, the library didn't look to comfy, the lectures aren't online, and seems hard to get to a grocery store." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"What to expect about the Bronx. That there really wouldn't be too much info presented on the school, so prepare a lot of questions!" Report Response
