What are your general comments?

"I would advise staying with a student host. Mine was awesome. Very happy to answer my questions and sell U-Pitt to me. Take a bus to and from the school, dont drive. It is onlt $1.75 each way compared to $15 to park in the tower or $8 for a cab each way. The students at Pitt are all very friendly. I was asked multiple times when walking to my interviews if I needed any help finding where I was going. I dont think I looked lost, but us interviewees stick out like a sore thumb. Overall I think Pitt is a great school. I'm a small-town guy so I dont know if I could get used to living in Pittsburgh, but I was very impressed with the school." Report Response
