What are your general comments?

"It was very positive. The tour was well done and I really enjoyed my experience at SUNY COM. Although it was interesting that both my interviewers were late (both had a good reason), they were very nice, informative and relaxed. I love the centrality of Syracuse, close to Canada and to all the major cities. Not to busy, yet has enough culture and personality. Thought it was interesting to find out that Downtown Syracuse had very few shops, most shopping is done at the malls. Got to enjoy the sights and take in the Broadway Musical Aida that was playing at their convention centre. If you don't need the big city life, Syracuse is the place to be. (I'm from the sub-urbs in Western Canada). Its too bad I've been wait-listed, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed." Report Response
