What are your general comments?

"The campus is gorgeous. It is nice to be able to spend 2 years in Valhalla/Westchester and then 2 in NYC. 9am-5pm lectures M-F seems really intense versus other campuses I have visited with less "pure lecture" time. The average boards are 6% above national average and the school generally has a very good match. Overall - a good feel, yet nothing that truly "wow-ed" me. " Report Response
