What are your general comments?

"VCU just underwent a change of office for administration. They are very unorganized and waste a lot of your time. I was there from 7:30 to 2:00 and literally spent half of that time sitting in an office without any communication with staff. I had three half hour interviews, two with staff and one with a student. I wrote an essay and had a tour. That was it. NO presentation on the school, no financial aid discussion, no question answer period. Overall it was a horrible interview. I dont think that is a reflection on the school because the students seemed happy, but it for sure didnt help my want to go to VCU." Report Response
