What are your general comments?

"The school seems really great. For the first two years, all the students are located on the Kansas City campus. During third and fourth year students get to pick whether or not they want to stay in KC or move to Wichita. Seems like the students are really happy. They get awesome opportunities to work in the community, and to go abroad. A great focus on cross-cultural understanding." Report Response
