What are your general comments?

"I was disappointed in my inteview because I felt that they focused more on my husband then they did on me. They seemed highly concerned that I was married. The first 5 or so minutes of my interview was focused on this aspect. The first question I was asked was if I had children, which I felt was not relevant and was inappropriate. When I told them no, they said "good." I feel sorry for any woman who does interview there that does have children. The rest of the interview was very pleasant though with some unique questions that I felt allowed the interview to see the type of person I am. The rest of the day was nice. The tour gave us an opprotunity to talk to students one on one and ask questions. They also made sure that all of the students were able to hear the financial aid presentation which was nice. This is a good school with a good reputation. " Report Response
