What are your general comments?

"I learned a great deal about the school during the interview and the tour given by a student was awesome! After lunch, I talked to several students and they said the way they survive is relying on transcripts not vital books??? I also learned that faculty members try to fail a lot of students and make them retake the courses so that students don't have enough time to study for the board exams during summer. I had a very positive impression during the informative interview but then I heard too many negative things about school while talking to students. I guess it's very important to ask the admissions officers about their retention rate during the interview and verify the rumors. " Report Response
