What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interview day made me feel unvalued as an applicant. There was no one-on-one time at all, no scheduled interviews with grad students, and no offer to stay with grad students. All the other schools at which I interviewed had some or all of these things. There was also a huge number of applicants at the open house. It felt very much like a rote process without much personal touch. They gave you option of leaving after your last interview rather than staying for all the activities. It didn't inspire me to to make any effort of my own." Report Response
