What are your general comments?

"Place is great, The building is fantastic, but the surrounding buildings and architechture arent really aesthetically pleasing. The facilities are a bit strange to navigate to. The school is in a very pricy area so finding affordable housing in a nice neighborhood under $1200 is difficult, let alone within short distance, expect 20-30+ minute commutes for that. The staff were very nice and the professors doing the interviews were genuinely interested in me. I over-prepared and could have gone in dry and felt fantastic in the interview." Report Response
