What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Change the system for signing up for an interview date... it's very inconvenient to have to check online for dates that are open and then call in the office to schedule. The website in general is very awkward and hard to figure out. Also, the Chicago spots fill up quickly and they won't give more dates until the other campus interviews fill up. Makes it kind of awkward for OOS who need to interview in Chicago." Report Response
