Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"this is bad...but i didnt know the school was in baltimore until i got the interview invitation. good one. had i known, i probably wouldn't have applied there. and my interviews weren't until the afternoon, which they neglected to tell me, so i spent the night in a hotel thinking that i would start at 9am when i really didnt need to be there till 11-i could have come up that morning and saved $100. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i dont know, the place just didnt rub me the right way. the students i talked to said they liked it there, but i don't think i would. apparently students don't really live in the area and everyone commutes in and pays outrageous parking fees. it seems like a pretty good school though, maybe if it was translplanted somewhere else i would have liked it more.
