What are your general comments?

"Supposidly the school is renovating an old building and converting them into dorms but - NO MEAL PLAN. From what I found out from some students, there was rather an ugly housing issue with on-campus housing where students had to vacate on a short-notice. The dorm rooms were supposed to be ready last month but no move-in date as of yet. I saw the new classrooms but nothing impressive. I talked to a few 3rd years who said that they were very unhappy with the way the rotations are handled, given that the school does not have its own medical center. I have a few other interviews but my decision is already made. You won't see me at TUCOM." Report Response
