What impressed you positively?

"facilities are new and thorough; students are very happy; area is okay; rent is very, very cheap; school is on a quarter system (10 weeks on, 2 weeks off)x3 (therefore, they squeeze 45 weeks of work into 30) = more time for studying for the boards/doing research; gym/pool on campus were pretty cool" Report Response
