What are your general comments?

"I was not impressed with the interview process at the University of Wisconsin or their administrative personnel. My invitation to interview indicated their would be "opportunities throughout the day to interact with faculty and staff" and yet there were no such opportunities whatsoever. There was no welcome from the dean, no student panel, an no opportunity to interact with anyone but the office personnel. And as the interviewers were alumni from 20+ years ago, they were of little help in providing up-to-date information regarding the program. The school offered one tour of their new building but it was scheduled during my interview time. Instead, I was given a self-guided "hand-out" to take the place of the tour. I was incredibly disappointed in the school's lack of attention given to the prospective students, as well as the lack of respect shown to students who travelled a distance in hopes of learning more about their institution."
