Response to unfavorable post

We have noticed a disgruntled candidate posting unfavorable comments about our program.Although our program is not for all applicants, the reviewer was probably jaded due to not being invited. please rotate and do an AI if interested as we have an excellent program. The competition is intense and our breadth of exposure is excellent.
