Personal recommendation
Its a great school if you are going just for academic reason. Overall, it is quite an experience for me but I was not tempted to extend my stay after my exchange was completed. If you want to experience a typical American university campus life, this is a place to go.

Make sure you get your driver license before you go, if not you are pretty much stuck to the campus.
