What are your general comments?

"Admissions people had 1st years tell us about the school, and then said that they were wrong about everything they had said (with them still present.) Interviews were screwed up - one interviewee only had one interview because they couldn't find anyone else to interview her. Free time to "meet and talk to students", who must have been in classes because no one was around, so we wandered for a couple of hours. Student interview was over lunch, which was nice and made it relaxed. But the interviewers were not assigned to anyone, so the picked their friends or people from their schools. (One interviewer/interviewee pair had been roommates in undergrad. Now that's fair.) Faculty interviews were fine, short. The tour...didn't show us anything. They took us into a stairwell and said "this leads to the brand new research building", but we never went in. They took us to the sliding doors leading into the hospital, but we never went in. Never saw labs, saw one lecture hall. But they did point out the bar that they all go to after exams. That I appreciated, but did not patronize." Report Response
