What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Perhaps a slightly shorter interview day. The financial aid presentation was helpful, but could have been summed up in a few handouts. I had my interviews in the afternoon so I was already a little tired from lunch, the campus tour and the tour of County hospital. If the interviews were an hour earlier that might've help the day not feel so long." Report Response
