What impressed you negatively?

"The interview was very....disorganized. We arrived on time, at 8:45 and sat in the admissions office for about an hour and only spoke to the secretary. The interviews were good; they were very similar to other interviews I have had. After the interviews we had a presentation from the financial aid secretary who was negative, to say the least. She seemed nice as a person but she did nothing more than make us more confused about the financial aid process. Tip for her, we already know that we are getting into a huge debt, you don't need to press that. It would be more effective to just inform us of our options. The whole feeling of the interview was blah. We never saw the dean of the school or the dean of admissions which I found odd." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing, I wasn't surprised by anything." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This interview was just boring. The process is more explained in the following questions. I am giving it a neutral rating because of the feeling I got at the interview. The school is lacking energy, maybe not the school, but the interview is definitely lacking energy and organization. I was never stressed or pushed or challenged the whole time. I do not necessarily think that the less-than-average interview reflects the school. All of the students seemed happy enough. " Report Response
