"There was one thing that rubbed me the wrong way during my time at VCU...the Director of Student Outreach or Minority Services. I felt that she asked questions that were inappropriate and really, none of her concern. She didn't make me feel comfortable." Report Response

"I would need to take a Vivarin in order to stay alert." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day wasn't bad...I just wasn't impressed. The people were definitely friendly. The student tour guides were cool. My interviewer was sweet (and a little strange). I don't feel they did anything to really "sell" the school. Maybe they did and I didn't see it because I had already formed my opinion. I don't know. I guess different people belong at different schools, and I just don't know if VCU is a perfect fit for me. Of course this will be the one school I get into. Doesn't it always happen that way?"
