What are your general comments?

"PSU is a great school, philly is a few hrs away, harrisburg sucks, PSU main campus is a couple hrs away, this school has MONEY, which translates into great facilities...students seem very happy......ummm.....it's worth the visit to see for yourself. As for the interviews, there were 2, one-on-one interviews and both were very laid back, the interviewers really seemed interested in getting to know me and were very conversational during the interviews. On campus housing, seem to have a good match percentage, a research project is required, but it's not too intimidating and it will help you when you go through match. " Report Response
