Like any other school there are good faculty and bad faculty. The difficulty with good faculty is that they often go on sabbatical where they are not much use to you. There are some "strange" kids here, though they are generally nice. The school caters to the Pittsburgh region and it sucks to be from New England. There are few of us and the school is not easy to get to. It is either a really long drive IF you can find someone with a car that can get you anywhere near your home, or it is a two hour ride to Pittsburgh and a short flight home if the airport doesn't close on you due to weather. Because so many kids are from the Pittsburgh region they tend to bond many times disregarding "foreigners." The school also is not very helpful when it comes to internships or other connections in New England. The food sucks, though there a few good moderately priced restaurants. housing is alright but very limited. The school accepts too many kids each year and doesn't have nearly enough housing. Also it can be very difficult to get the classes you want especially as a freshman or sophomore. It's frustrating to know students in very poor academic standing get to choose classes before other kids in their class. While it is nice that the school gives them a chance to succeed/take easier professors it sucks that someone who is pre-med can't get the classes they need or end up taking three labs in one semester because their courses fill up.
