What impressed you negatively?

"Too many things. The day was very disorganized and I felt there was very poor communication about the day. One event was cancelled (never explained to us why) and no attempt was made to fill the hour spot, we ended up sitting in a board room for 40 minutes twiddling our thumbs while waiting for the interviews. We were each assigned a student to take us around and eat lunch with, and my student never showed up. My second interviewer seemed frazzled, had not looked at my application, and mainly asked me "where did you go to high school? college? have you done research?"- all extremely boring questions that were on the application. She cut off the interview early and didn't give me chance to ask questions." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The wording of the interview invitation was very confusing. Didn't understand if I was in the morning or afternoon group. Never received any confimation emails or emails asking if I would like to stay with a student. The whole day felt very unorganized. The student that was supposed to take me around never showed up. We couldn't go to a class and ended up waiting for 40 minutes in the room doing nothing. My interviewer had not reviewed my file while the other had." Report Response
