"My interviewer" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Lots of things: For one they say the metro drops you right off at the school, which it doesn't, it drops you 3-4 blocks away and you are right on a major busy road, and if you are heading straight from the airport (as I was) you have a suitcase, then it is not very conducive. Second the students at lunch sat on the admissions committee and this wasn't common knowledge. I was hugely discouraged by this. Third: the students weren't very enthusiatic, I asked a couple of students and they said the reason they went was because they got in." Report Response

"I'm not saying that SLU is a bad school but it just wasn't for me. This was my backup school and as soon as I got at one of my top choices I withdrew my application here. The admissions staff was very accomadating(my flight was late and they were very understanding)." Report Response
