"The school seemed committed to the success of its students because their reputation is on the line as well. financial aid seemed organized and stated they would provide adequately for its students. They were open to ideas from the students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the building itself wasn't raised yet so we couldn't even go inside to see it.. so we're applying to a school that doesn't exist yet. The area of harlem isn't the best. The presenters that day kept on repeating the fact that our lives will be miserable (as pioneers). Since the school is new, there is no organization at all (ie, housing, public safety, etc)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a strange experience considering the school doesn't yet exist. It was relatively organized. They provided breakfast and lunch which was nice. They didn't have much to show us because the building isn't even ready yet, so we just took a walk around the block. It's not the best of areas but not the absolute worst either. the interviewers were really nice; Obed seemed overwhelmed. an fair interview experience. " Report Response
