What impressed you negatively?

"The whole feel of the interview day was off. Instead of being treated like future members of the school, I felt like we were more of an inconvenience to those in the school. We spent a lot of time sitting and waiting in the Admissions Office, we didn't get an orientation "Hey, welcome to our school!" type meeting, and our interviewers/tour guides just came and grabbed us when it was convenient for them. We then went on a tour with a couple of students, had lunch, went back to the Admissions Office to wait for a while more, and then were given essentially the same tour the students gave us by one of the admissions staff. The whole day just seemed haphazard and disjointed." Report Response
