What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Provide a light breakfast (coffee, juice, bagels, yogurt, etc.) and a more simple lunch option. Temperature was uncomfortably cold. Conducting interviews in a room large enough to be further than 6 feet from interviewers would allow masks to come off (it was hard to hear/ talk with masks on and so close to each other in a tiny office). Presentations and tour were helpful!" Report Response
