What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"It would be nice if there was an effort to entice non-residents to come to the school. To tack on and extra 30K per year and then to offer no scholarships for non-residents makes it seem like the school doesn't really care to get qualified non-residents into the program. It would also be nice if the website specified that the charter scholarships were only for residents. I was really let down when I discovered I was not eligible." Report Response
