What impressed you positively?

"The students were absolutely wonderful. All of them were coming up to us to answer questions, say hello, and ask us about ourselves. They are one of the only reasons I'm still considering this school (see below)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I got there at 8:30am and someone (not sure who) told me to sit in the cafe with the other applicants. That's the last admissions person (if that's in fact who she was) I saw. The faculty came and got us for interviews, and brought us back. My tour was supposed to be at 10:00, but my 11:15 we kidnapped a student and he gave us a quick tour. Then a faculty member felt bad for all of us and gave us another tour. No one was there to welcome us, no name tags, no introductions, no overview of the school except for some photocopied pages, no official tour, no direction and no schedule (at leat that anyone followed). Twilight Zone?? Lunch was supposed to be at 12:00, but we didn't know what or where or with whom. We stood in a circle in the lobby like idiots until one of us finally found someone from the curriculum office and she took us to a small room with chairs stacked against the wall, and a small tray of food that looked like it was left over from the last interview group who couldn't find it. Then I left. End of story. The "process" was the worst you could ever expect. I try not to expect too much from an interview day and go in with an open mind, but this was just pitiful." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I would be expected to wander aimlessly around the school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The students were incredible, and since that's who I'll be spending my time with, I'm still considering the school. I'll never have a reason to see admissions (again?) so I'm trying not to let that affect my decision..." Report Response
