What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Overall I had a very nice experience there. But I felt bad for the students that are going to have the interviews after the tour and around lunch time. Maybe in the future, set up some more interview days so that less students are interviewed on the same day, and they could all enjoy the tour after the interview and lunch." Report Response
