What are your general comments?

"In general it seemed as if they were not trying particularly hard to recruit, even though much of their materials in the packet referred to the day as ''Class of 2011 recruitment day''. The whole thing seemed rather impersonal. The tour did not offer much in terms of actually seeing the facilities they have at the school - lots of hallways and not much else. As it was closed file and intended to be a short interview, it did not seem as if the panel really cared too much about getting to know me. " Report Response
