What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"They need to be more aware of what their professors are doing in front of the interviewees that could cause them to view the school in a negative light. For example a professor throwing his wallet at a secretary and shouting at a secretary does not reflect well on the school. Also I understand that some interviews are meant to be stressful, but interviewers should never be rude and insulting to people who have worked hard and spent a lot of money to be there."
