What are your general comments?

"My interview was harmless, but the school did NOTHING to sell itself. There was no one from admissions to welcome the interviewees as a group or who was appointed to speak with us about the curriculum or community. And worst of all, the interview lasting only about half an hour, was over before 9am and there was nothing else planned for the day except a student-guided tour at 12pm. Killing 3 hours in a crowded room with a bunch of other interviewees is no fun and an insult to our time. Maybe Columbia believes that the school sells itself, but I STILL don't know enough about it to say...." -Posted 12/02/2004 | Report Response
