What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interview experience was disappointing. The interviewer never even introduced himself and was incredibly cynical throughout the entire encounter. He sought pleasure out of "grilling" me about my experiences and activities. The tour was at best "ok" and the facilities immediately turned me off from this school. The only positive thing about the trip (other than my steak dinner) was that it gave me interview experience in a place that is relatively unattractive. " Report Response
