What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. Just remember, stockton isnt the best area in the world but its better than Compton or Inglewood. Its not that bad- this is of course coming from a 6'2" 210 lbs male. Judge it yourself it isnt that bad. Oh yeah, and if you are guy.....brace yourself, females there are not very pretty. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"United Airlins SUCKS! Avoid them. We were grounded at LAX, sitting on the plane on the way back because they couldnt find a gate to connect to the airport WTF?!! Eat a LIGHT meal before you go. The interview takes 3.5-4hrs, plan your flight accordingly- I know its hard to change when you get a travel pakcage from expedia but....understand that it really does take about 1 hour going back North to Sacramento on the five. Just pay the few extra measly dollars and stay at the Radisson. Its worth it. DO NOT stay at Vagbaund inn. Stay at a hotel. La-Quinta Suites is very close (1 exit) from the school. My motel was two exits from it and was ghe-tto. " Report Response
