What impressed you negatively?

"The school seemed very disorganized...it is changing its curriculum next year, yet no one had any concrete information on the changes. The location is awful: one of my tour guides actually said that she is scared to walk from the library to her dorm at night because the island is deserted and scary. Also, the facilities were old and the classroom was dark. I was not happy to hear about the block exam schedule: one student said that she once had 13 exams in one week! " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school seems to take advantage of its location in the Bay area: the students tend to go to the school based on this alone. Ironically, it seems like it is difficult to stay in the Bay area for the 3rd and 4th year. Some students are in mid-western states for these years." Report Response
