What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities. The guide said they weren't state of the art, and he was right. They aren't awful, they just weren't as upto date as other schools may have. The local area. Its not the nicest location. Buffalo itself is cool but its close to a 10 minute drive from the school. It obviously snows alot and is cold. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good, but short. I was a little nervous that most students were taking 30-40 minutes in their interview and mine was only 10-15 minutes. I had the interviewers laughing and smiling so I think it went well, they just didn't ask me any hard questions. (Hopefull thats a good sign)." Report Response
