What impressed you negatively?

"Our student tour guide, although he had an adequate knowledge of the school, didn't seem too thrilled at his assignment of showing us around. The neighborhood is quite awful.

What are your general comments?

"I got there in the morning, maybe an hour earlier than I was supposed to, so I walked to the McDonalds to chill for a bit. I had the tour of the school first, then the interview. My interviewer was nice enough. He didn't really ask me any questions worth mentioning, just some stuff about my file. It was mostly a conversation. What can I say, Columbia is Columbia. Its probably a really excellent school, but you won't be able to tell that from your visit. I didn't really like the environment there, and I'm not sure why. Bad vibes I suppose. The students I met didn't seem like particularly interesting people - but then again I might have just gotten a bad sample. " -Posted 11/04/2003 | Report Response
