What impressed you positively?

"The building is really fancy, new, and beautiful!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The surrounding neighborhood is sketchy. I know people said that on SDN a lot, but I didn't know quite how much. Also, I thought my student tour guides were a bit strange... at other schools I interviewed, student guides often split up so interviewees can ask them questions. Here, they clumped up with each other and talked about how their classmates are doing or about that last exam they took. Really? :-/ So at some points, it was literally the tour guides talking to each other in front and all of us interviewees in a separate clump following them. Then at lunch they started talking about how they started taking certain pills to stay awake at night." Report Response
