What impressed you negatively?

"I had originally planned to stay in the student dorm on the med campus (Deming), only to find that they hadn't prepared for my stay. The dorm seemed more like a hospital ward and I was not impressed. While waiting for a cab to a hotel, the guard reminded me to stand in view of the cameras because it was ''dangerous in this area''. The downtown area where the med campus is located is really a bit seedy and everyone lived uptown, in the nicer area. You'd also need a car here, which I don't have." Report Response
