"The Bronx. Not so hot unless you like hanging out at "Oil and lube" and other auto parts places!

What are your general comments?

"I arrived very nervous, but was soon put to ease by the extremely friendly students, staff and faculty. The other applicants and I went to dinner with the current students the night before the interviews. I learned a lot about the program and was really surprised at how laid back and HAPPY the students are. They love their school, which I think really says a lot. We then went to a student's apartment where they had set up a small party for us. The housing is great and more current students came by to say hello. I had 2 formal and 4 informal interviews the next day. They were all really low stress and comfortable. We never took a tour, but I wish we had. Overall, I had a great experience and was really impressed with the school and its learning environment. I give it two thumbs up!" Report Response
