"Better organization, communication, and dissemination of information. There was no follow up or detailed information regarding the interview day, transportation, etc."
"It would be VERY nice if, in addition to the snail mail decision letter, Banner updates could be made frequently."
"The wording of the emails sent out by the admissions staff is truly unlike anything I've ever seen from a professional institution. Abrasive language and disclaimers stating that the staff won't entertain phone calls regarding receipt of materials is simply baffling, given the fact that PCOM-GA requires a more than standard fee for processing the secondary application submission. That said, I was impressed by location of the facilities and the friendliness of the students. A net-positive impression. But I do think they could drastically improve their appeal with minimal effort."
"There should be multiple students giving the tours to smaller groups of interviewees. The school itself is rather echo-ey, so it was very difficult to hear."
"I wish they would call or email your acceptance instead of using snail mail as your FIRST notification. Apparently in-state students receive their letters later? I received mine a week after I saw on SDN that other students got accepted. I just wanted to know!! :p"
"Keep up the great work!"
