What are your general comments?

"There were some problems. First of all, the interviewer was very nice, but it didn't seem like he was interested in hearing anything I was talking about. Almost as if he had a preconceived notion of my beforeo I walked in the door and anything I did or said wouldn't alter his opinion (his opinion probably wasn't bad, but feeling like the interview is predetermined doesn't feel very good either way). Also, the student tour guide was just annoyed....she buzzed through everything and said how much she loved it here, but I could tell she didn't give a shit. Another problem was that the class was EXRTREMELY Young...most people came right out of undergraduate...i want a more diverse student body. People who took more time off...i dunno, that's just me. It felt like most of the students were still in college in terms of emotional maturity. " Report Response
