What impressed you negatively?

"Students seemed somewhat insecure. They were constantly putting down UCC and UPR, stating that their school was better. Enough already! Why don't you sell me on the positive points of your school instead of "We do this better than UCC" or we have better recognition than UPR. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"An easier way to find the school and that it takes much longer to get there than it should. Fortunately I arrived the night before. If you are flying into San Juan, plan accordingly as Ponce is on the southern part of the island well away from San Juan." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interviews were laid back and were conducted in both Spanish and English. The student interviewer seemed enthusiastic. I felt though that the staff and students could focus more on selling their school as opposed to trying to disparage other schools. I mean, what's the point? It is a laid back place and the people are friendly. There is a lot to do, but not nearly as much as in San Juan, but if you like a smaller city that may be OK." Report Response
