What are your general comments?

"School was pretty nice, and the people were all really laid back. Students were pretty cool too. New Haven itself was the only thing I didn't like (see above). Oh, also I was supposed to stay with a student host, but the office never finished setting it up. I even contacted them to confirm weeks in advance and they never got back to me so I had to blow $100 staying at a hotel." Report Response
