What impressed you negatively?

"It almost seemed like they were all trying too hard to impress the interviewees which made me cautious. There was alot of down time and we couldnt sit in on classes because both 1st and 2nd years had exams. Didnt get to see the PBL classrooms. Also the city is not large at all. There isnt much to do there. It is pretty much a dead city if you are used to big cities. Also it snows A LOT!! I spoke to residents and students who all said it snows about 120inches a year. They said the snow usually melts by July....so it is pretty cold!" Report Response
