What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"To set the start time of the interview according to the train arrival time. We were suppose to be at the school at 10 am. There is a train that arrives on campus at 9:45. However, since the main campus is very big, the interviewee needed to take a shuttle bus, and since there are multiple buses, it ca be very confusing to get to the dental school building. In total, it may take about 30 mins to get from the station to the interview location. I have heard some interviewee taking the train that arrived around 7:45 because the 9:42 one was cutting it too close." Report Response
