Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

This program is horribly organized. One of the coordinators for the international program was absolutely horrible towards speaking with students when she is supposed to be an advisor helping with the integration into the environment. It was completely disrespectful and pretty much set the tone for the whole experience.
