Applied here as a "back up" school and have only had bad experiences, even in the application process! Unfortunately, their process is very unorganized, unspecific, and I wonder what there criteria for acceptance is because it's obviously not based on grades or ability. They are able to reject you and not give any sort of explanation due to a "high number of applicants" but in the opinion of most people, that is extremely unprofessional and just embarrassing. Pretty much every school in the world has a high number of applicants! That is code word for "we have reasons to reject you that are illogical and unfair." For a school with such low rankings, they aren't trying very hard to do things correctly. You can learn a lot about a structure of an institution based off their initial impressions, and I am grateful to have avoided this one.
Hello, hi. We are very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with the application process. We will passed your comments onto the admission team, so they can improve their application system. Thank you.
I liked the benefits of the school.
