What impressed you positively?

"absolutely nothing." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Starting with Dr. Kasberg, the dean of admissions, the interview 'day' was completely cold and impersonal. Dr. Kasberg was also an interviewer and lacked any personality whatsoever. The facilities at IU are antiquated at best. Students seem disgruntled, unhappy, or just bored - I'm not sure which. My entire interview day was over in less than 30 minutes - I was not offered a tour, just a cursory stop in the admissions office to make sure they have all their paperwork." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"According to the one student that I talked with briefly as I was leaving, the school keeps saying that they are going to improve facilities or update curriculum, but it just doesn't happen. Students are not happy with the experience or the education in general." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Two faculty versus me. No original questions - just standard a-monkey-could-recite-these interview questions. Dr. Kasberg was cold and dissinterested. The other interviewer was friendly but said little." Report Response
