"I discovered that the school, as a whole, was not very friendly. None of the students really talked to the interviewees; it seemed as though they thought they were better than us. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The atmosphere on campus is definitely lacking. It seems almost as if it's painful for anyone to crack a smile. Everything was very scripted, from the presentations to the interviews. I did not feel like the interviewers were trying to get to know me as a person. It appeared that they were going through the motions, and nothing more. Sitting in the interviewing room was very uncomfortable because they just bombard you with questions as they went in a continuous circle from this interviewer to that interviewer. I'm almost positive everyone was asked the same questions from the same sheets. Overall, I was not impressed." Report Response
