What are your general comments?

"When I arrived that morning I was greated by a very enthusiastic admissions staff and pretty much remained seated in teh admissions office foyer for the reminaing of the interview day. I got the opportunity to spend a lot fo time with the other interviewees, but didnt really leanr anything about the school. I was the first interview and had two stone faced men and one kind 4th year. I was drilled on what I would do in a given situation and after each of my responses the interviewer just stared at me and said, "that's all you would do?" No one could give any really good reason for attending teh school. No one spoek about the program, we were given a viewbook when we arrived. Overall, I was let down. For 33,000 a year, they needed to do a little better job of selling their program and they didn't. " Report Response
