What are your general comments?

"I wish they had students give the tour of the campus. I think that my interview day didn't quite impress me about Western. The staff seemed dull and not so enthusiastic. It's not just the school interviewing me, but it's also an opportunity for the school to show me what's so great about them to make me want to choose their program. They certainly did not do a good job of impressing me. " Report Response
