"The facilities aren't that great, and very few students came to tell us why they liked the school. It felt like a place a lot of people weren't excited to be at. It also seems to cater to NC residents with scholarships and opportunities. The schedule looks jam packed with not a lot of free-time, and there don't seem to be that many interesting innovations in their curriculum." Report Response
