What are your general comments?

"The tour and the presentation you get in the morning about Drexel was uneventful and boring at worst. I was interviewed by an admissions officer who literally had never laid eyes on my file before-- since I was told that interviews were going to be open file, this took me by surprise. The interviewer's body language was extremely negative, like she was bored at what I was talking about. I had a terrible feeling when I left the interview, but I ended up getting in. Don't let the turkeys get you down!" Report Response
