What impressed you negatively?

"There was no tour or introduction. The 15 minutes that we had in the beginning was basically, "Here's your schedule today, now go to your prospective rooms." Questions that we had for students were done in their student panels, but the students looked not interested and bored (and brought their laptops in). I felt like the school should have done more to make students feel more welcomed. The expensive out-of-state tuition and high living costs were not appealing either. " Report Response
