What impressed you negatively?

"No drinks allowed in lecture, it's far away from eastern NY, dress code, lecture 8am-5pm which is mandatory. But honestly, these things just make it more professional of a school (not the distance though, it's still faaaar away!)" Report Response

"How far away the school was!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Park in the back and enter through the back entrance, which is technically the only entrance to the school (the atrium, or front, is off-limits). Use SDN, all of the questions are on here and in this format (the 8-9 question list is accurate!). Other than that, don't be nervous, everyone here is wonderful and is not trying to grill you! They never even look at your file so they truly wish to know you as a person, not as a student statistic! That, to me, speaks volumes!" Report Response
