What are your general comments?

"Overall, I thought it was a very good day. In fact, maybe too short. I wish we would have had more time to talk to the student who came to speak to us in the morning. I actually liked the housing. It did have a collegey feel to it, but you just can't beat furnished apartments. And yeah, it's not that close to the city, but what did people expect? You should know where you're applying before you apply there." Report Response
