"Case would not live up to its prestigous reputation." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was not impressed with Case. If you have an afternoon interview, they have you sitting around with nothing to do from 8:45 until lunch (you had the option to attend a class for ~50 minutes). Bring a book or something. Lunch and financial aid was fine. After lunch, the interviewees sat around for 25 minutes waiting for the tour guides to pick us up. I didn't have time to complete the tour, since my interview was scheduled to begin 10 minutes after the tour began. Several times during the day, I comptemplated getting up and leaving. I'm lucky that I already have an acceptance to a school I love and didn't agonize over this experience once it ended. Interviewers should make you feel comfortable- not completely incompetent like mine did." Report Response
