What are your general comments?

"The interviewers were down right hostile. This is my third interview and I walked out of there feeling angry and frustrated. I can handle stoic faces but I can't handle it when they were giving dirty looks like that. You'd think that I just killed their beloved dog or something. My two interviewers were part of the faculty and if this is the way that they treat potential students, then I don't want to even know what it'll be like to ask them for help for one of their classes. Other than that, be prepared to be ignored. They separated everyone into 4 groups: 3 panels. Groups 1 and 2 interview first and groups 3 and 4 goes on a tour and financial aid discussion. This would have been great if groups 1 and 2 could go at the same time but we didn't. Group 1 goes first (8:30am) and group 2 goes at (9:30am). So whoever was in that group arrived there at 7:45 am and sat in the waiting room for 2 hours until they did anything. This experience was so disappointing, it completely turned me off about the school. They need to take notes from their Chicago school." Report Response
