What are your general comments?

"Very poorly conducted. My tenth interview and by far the worst. Students treated very impersonally, interview is very subjective. I was accepted to a top-ranked American school, but not even put on the waiting list here. Why? Because of two confrontational interviewers, who were aggressive and biased. Opposed to common belief, McGill does not have stress-free interviews. Prepare and beware!" -Posted 01/31/2004 | Report Response
