What are your general comments?

"Why don't we start from the interview letter? Very dirty, photcopied and disgusting. Well, that set the tone for the interview. Current students may try to salvage the school's reputation as much as they can but if I were the president, I would close this school down. I guess the political implication is too risky.hmmm...I would still close it down anyway. Everything was disorganized, food sucked, tour sucked, interviewer was like an hung over vampire and I just hated the entire process. I am black and I was very ashamed leaving this institution regarded as an HBCU. Wake up Howard! I regret applying to this school. What a waste of my time and money." Report Response
