The east coast interviewees, by the way, kept mentioning that "the midwest actually isn't that bad" what the heck is that supposed to mean? I've lived in NY, I've been to Boston....they have nothing on Chicago. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I'm bored and it occured to me that I never posted any interview feedback about this school, which i had been meaning to do because it was quite unplesant. Overall I liked the city, the school, the administration, and even my interviewers-- what I couldn't stand were my fellow interviewees. Maybe it's because I'm from the midwest and they were mainly eastcoasters (boston primarily) but the vast majority of them were subtly condescending, pretentious, and for lack of a better word...mean. A friend of mine has a wife who goes to NW and she confirmed that, while she loves the school, she really has trouble getting along with the vast majority of students there. I don't know what it is, but after meeting these kids I'm not going to school there." Report Response
