What are your general comments?

"My interview was not very stressful. My interviewer began by telling me not to worry or be nervous. I've read alot of complaints about the campus and the surrounding area, but didn't see what they were talking about. I guess it's just a matter of opinion. I found the campus to be very nice. The surrounding area is typical upstate NY, and I guess if you prefer a big city you wouldnt like it. I saw the on campus housing as a convenience, not a negative aspect. And as for the prison, I didnt see any escaped inmates running around." Report Response
