What are your general comments?

"On my way to the interview, I was called and told there was a 'miscommunication' between the PA and GA campuses and the email we were sent was 'incorrect.' They wanted to move my interview from 1:30pm to 12pm--impossible b/c I was already in route & was too far away. Then they tried to RESCHEDULE it! I declined that 'offer' and said I would get there when I could. There was nothing to eat/snack on as promised in the email. I signed in at 1230; was called to interview at 1240 and had to wait 20 mins on my other interview (there are two per interview) to finish leisurely chatting with a student. I finally entered the interview room around 1pm (let me remind you that they wanted me to interview at 12; what happened??). The interview went ok. After, we had a campus tour and were free to go. However, on the 'interview day schedule' we were given, an welcome/info session, and a financial aid session were listed but....that never happened. " Report Response
