What impressed you negatively?

"Well, I know NYCOM outside of this interview and always held it in high esteem. Unfortunately they did NOT put their best foot forward that day and it made me re-think a lot of things. Basically I didn't feel like they were trying at all to impress us and that we were supposed to impress them. Other schools made it a point to say that we were interviewing them just as much as they were interviewing us. We were stuffed into a room for hourse, the financial aide lady didn't talk to us and they "lost the hand outs" she gave them to give us so we have no idea how much the school will cost overall. Also, the asst financial aide person was there but "doesn't speak in front of people"... ok then. They "didn't know" exactly what the cirriculum is like this year for lecture based students and "didn't know" what it will be like next year, esp since it's changed 3 times in 4 years. We weren't given the offer tosit in on any classes. The students admitted to not knowing eachother and fourth year still meeting people they've never seen. It seemed that there were too many students at NYCOM because of the location rather than because of the school. " Report Response
