What impressed you negatively?

"My interviewer was late and they had to push my interview back 2 hours!! it was scheduled for 8 am and I didn't interview until about 10:15 am. So that was really annoying, and then he seemed really rushed, and kind of like okay let's get this over with, but once we started talking and asking questions, he seemed to chill out a little and so I think the interview went well, it was just getting to that point that was a lot of waiting" Report Response

"The interview day is more like a few hours, not a lot of presentations from different committees and departments (which I actually like btw, you get a chance to meet more people from the school)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall okay, besides the schedule conflict, there were only 5 other people interviewing today, so it was a pretty small group, but everyone was nice, the tour is short and sweet, lunch with M2s is great, they were really honest and friendly, and they clarified the whole safety/crime issue of St. Louis for us, they say it's not that bad as long as you don't get lost in a bad part of town, or walk alone at night, they have breakfast set up for you, and lunch is the basic sandwiches ect. A financial aid coordinator informed us that the tuition is over $40,000 . . . yikes!" Report Response
