What are your general comments?

"Overall, I didn't get a positive view of the school, but I noticed that a lot of the people I interviewed with did like it. Because you have to wait in a room for 3 hours while you wait for everyone to be interviewed, the day drags on - try to get to know the other people there while you wait. The interviewers only look at your application for like 30 seconds before you walk in. The school seemed to me to be impersonal - everyone does their own thing. " Report Response
