What are your general comments?

"I'm surprised there isn't a whole thread devoted to Mrs. Sullivan on here as apparently she is the most indelible part of the interview experience. I was a little taken aback at they way she addressed people and by some of the inappropriate questions she asked, e.g. ''Say something. I want to hear a Chinese speak in a Southern Accent because thats so funny'' and ''You're Catholic aren't you? How many times a week do you pray on your rosary?'' To be fair, Mrs. Sullivan is an engaging speaker and had interesting things to say. I just think that the whole spirit of the day and the school should not ride on one person. How many of these interview feedback respondents haven't mentioned her? I didn't enjoy my interview. My interviewer was a moderately combative and distant. This was probably her interview style- make the person feel uncomfortable to see how he/she responds- but I didn't like it. The tour guides were nice enough even if they had no clue where they were going. And I don't like the SMP program because I think it may detract from the M1 experience and education."
