What are your general comments?

"Its a great school in a great location. Walk out of class and go catch a basketball or lacrosse game. Get out of the library on Saturday and go to the Dome for a football game, a few beers and a Dome Dog. Hit Armory Square for some good food, maybe some Dinosaur. Teach and Kaplan class right around the block. There is so much right there and a lot to do in the immediate area. I'm bias because I love Syracuse and I have really fallen in love with the people I have come into contact with at Upstate...not to mention I live close by and it is so damn cheap...NYM and AMC around $33,000...are ya kidding me?"
