What are your general comments?

"Mine may have been a special circumstance in that the University had cancelled classes for a snow day, but it was not fun. There was one guy who told me to go to my interview, but never even said his name or his job. I think he was a med student filling in for an admissions staffer. We did not get the scheduled financial aid or admissions meetings. We had an interview and were told we would have some sessions, but upon returning to the gathering room, we were told to leave because no one was there to give tours or info sessions. We came to DC for a 20 minute chat with a doctor that I can not see how it would help an application. I'm telling this not only to complain(that's fun too though) but also to show what GW is like when they don't care about impressing anyone. They completely blew us off which was frustrating after paying $300 to come and interview at a school where I really had wanted to go." Report Response
