What are your general comments?

"The school has incredible resources. Parkland was really interesting. The students were nice, but I didn't think they were all that social (I only had the chance to speak with a few, mind you). I don't think it is cutthroat as its reputation tends to support, but it is a very challenging curriculum and its students are competitive and among the most intelligent in the nation. Thus, you seem to have to learn to be comfortable being average, or possibly below average." Report Response
