What are your general comments?

"again, like i said, i was scheduled to interview with a UMB student but I had another UMB student joined the group without an advanced notice. I think he volunteered to be there. And the school did not have a problem with that. I do not think that is professional. My designated interviewer did not get to ask my very many questions. and the additional interviewer asked me many silly questions." Report Response
