Lack of interaction with students/faculty." Report Response

"I did not get a good impression of this school before I visited and after I went there I felt like I wasted 7+ hours of my life driving there for nothing.

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"I think the materials sent out to applicants need to be presented better. I got an impression of disorganization from my interactions with the university and admissions office. I also got very curt responses when I made my call to schedule an interview. I know it's stressful, but I always try to be nice on the phone, and even this short conversation make an impression when there is little to go on otherwise, :(." Report Response
