What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The day was unorganized, we spent so much time trying to get everyone interviewed and there was no food. Every other morning interview I have gone to has offered some snacks. And after three hours of waiting to finally be done with my interviews, I was shaking for food. Because it took so long to be done with the interviews, we got a shortened version of the tour and I had to stop eating before I was done. My second interviewer was plain nasty. She had be at the point of tears for no good reason except to berate me. I know for a fact I am not the only one she has done that too. I felt overall that the interviewers made their opinions too well known, which I think is inappropriate in an interview when concerning topics so polarizing. Other schools have provided avenues for dealing with inappropriate interviewers, but CMS made no mention of what to do in that case, so I kept quiet. I really liked the prospect of going to school close to home and close to Chicago, but frankly, the interview day completely changed my mind." Report Response
