What are your general comments?

"The surrounding area is a little ghetto, but there are many areas only 30 40 minutes away that give you plenty of things to do. It's a young school, but has a LOT to offer its students in clinical experience, lab time, and learning side by side with their faculty. I'd be honored to be given an invitation to join Western U."
