What are your general comments?

"We all had to get their at 9, however, the dmissions dean was late and the 13 of us were placed in front of this self-running video on the history of the school until another guy runs in to save us and talk about the school for over an hour. Due to their mistake, those with 11 or 11:30 interviews had to miss the tour and take a 30 minute shuttle to the hospital for an interview. My interviewer had someone before me and during the interview was constantly interrupted by his pager, the phone ringing, and people coming into the office. Once I took the shuttle back to the school I had to sit in a room for 1.5 hours until they could find a student interviewer to eat lunch with us. During this interview I was scarfing down food with someone who had already completed 4 other interviews because no other students signed up. Overall, terrible experience." Report Response
