What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The interview process was organized, and as efficient as it could have been. In the future, I'd suggest some basic courtesies to keep in mind while students are waiting for their interviews in the designated waiting room. Friends that come to offer support are wonderful for those applicants that have them. Conversations between friends and family, especially those that offer unsolicited advice, can be a source of stress and distract the other candidates from being able to focus." Report Response
