What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"I was invited to an interview at 10:00. NOWHERE did it mention an earlier time. I arrived 15 minutes early to find out I was actually fifteen minutes late. Another girl came when I did. We compared our letters with others and theirs had an earlier time than our letter. This was a disconcerting way to begin. When we took our math exam there was loud talking in the hall. If the objective was to see how well we handled ourselves under pressure then it was a good plan. If your object was to see what math we knew then perhaps it was not a good plan. My suggestion is to have a quiet test and be sure everyone has the same letter. Everything else was great." Report Response
