What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Definitely increase the time for the classic interview. There wasn't nearly enough time to answer all the questions thoroughly, let alone time to ask questions. Also, although there are a lot of students interviewing per day, the blocked group schedule definitely puts students who interview later in the day at a disadvantage because you are mentally fatigued from all the Q&A sessions."
