What are your general comments?

"I am extremely impressed by Pitt. This school really has it together. I was prepared to see "nice facilities." But I was not prepared for the relaxing, friendly atmosphere. The faculty is wonderful, including ROSE! She is like that aunt you only see every few years, but always remembers your name and gives you a heartfelt hello at the family reunion! This is a great school-I have no clue how the negative posts arise. Don't take their word, but don't take my word for it either... apply and go interview. I will probably end up at Pitt.
