"Not much." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities seem to lag top-notch DO schools like DMU and UMDNJ in quality. Perhaps most importantly, however, the neighborhood is totally ghetto and feels very threatening - don't let anybody tell you otherwise. It scared my wife to the extent that I was considering ditching the interview altogether." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the campus was in the middle of one of the scariest neighborhoods I've ever had to deal with (and I'm from downtown Cleveland, so I've dealt with my share of ghetto neighborhoods)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The facilities were merely alright. The campus was so out of place in that neighborhood; it was merely a cluster of relatively nice buildings in the midst of chaotic squalor. (The fact that the campus is surrounded by an 8 foot cast iron fence alone speaks volumes.) The school-owned student housing was dingy, dumpy and depressing. I won't be going here unless everything else falls through." Report Response
