What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really, I knew what the facilities were like beforehand and don't think that's an adequate reason to base a decision on the school. Sure it's great to have new facilities, but UIC actually reminded me of parts of my HS and undergrad institution. Older buildings don't bother me as long as the school offers modern accommodations such as lectures online. " Report Response
