What are your general comments?

"I arrived at 9:15 am, but it was nearly 10 am when they started. In general, there was a lot of waiting. After the tour and lunch (tiny sandwiches and soda) we all went into a student lounge and just sat there waiting for hours, not knowing when our interviews were going to happen. Some students already had two interviews, while others were still waiting for their first one. The interviews themselves seemed formal. Both interviewers had identical list of questions and randomly asked from it. I even got the same question twice. Overall, I liked the school, but the interview day itself was poorly scheduled (in my opinion)." Report Response
