What are your general comments?

"My UC experience was fine, but not thrilling. I didn't get a lot of enthusiasm from anyone about the school, which concerns me. The dean that talked with us at the beginning seemed rushed, the financial aid person didn't crack a smile once, the tour guide was nice but not enthusiastic....just not all that exciting. My interview was good, but I'm not sure if my interviewer had read my file, as there was no mention of anything that my personal statement discussed. My biggest criticism, however, was that I only spoke with one student. " Report Response
