What are your general comments?

"An amazing school. I would love nothing more than to be here next year. Probably has the most accomplished student body of any school- lots of people with crazy talents- gold-medal olympians, chess grandmasters, concert pianists, fighter pilots. Most of all though, two dozen students must have stopped by the interview room to chat with us throughout the day. All were so nice, forthcoming, and helpful. Housing is also incredible- I stayed with a second year friend who has a 15x20 room with a huge bay window overlooking downtown manhattan, the GW bridge, the Jersey coastline, and the Hudson river and he pays $600/month. I also love New York- I lived there for a year after college and would love to return for four years. " -Posted 09/30/2003 | Report Response
