What are your general comments?

"I was sent a letter telling me that I would have the choice of interviewing in the morning or afternoon. I chose morning, and was told to be there by 8:45am. When i got there, people in the office laughed at me and said 'no, you don't have to be here until 11:00am.' When i showed them the letter I was sent, they again chuckled and said that was the next day's schedule and not today's. Well, thank you for the info...maybe next time you will add that little piece of significant info in the darn letter! What a waste of a day. The area is expensive and well, you have to deal with New Yorkers. The school appears to have great students, however. This would be my second choice with PCOM being my first." Report Response
