What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The interview dates could have been more structured. I wish there had been a Q and A or student panel (like other schools had). I was not welcomed when I arrived for the tour, and actually had to track down someone to begin my pre-interview essay. I felt like the admissions office did not take an interest in the students there for interviews, and actually decided not to go to the pizza mixer because of it. The only faculty that spoke with me were the ones conducting the interview." Report Response
