What impressed you negatively?

"They were super rankings obsessed. If USNews ranked them on ANYTHING it made it into their PowerPoint. My faculty interview was also the rudest I’ve ever had. The guy seemed like he didn’t want to be there at all and was more concerned about how efficiently he could covert me into a set of numbers that the admissions committee could vote on. He also talked down about my activities and spoke accusingly about the number of projected hours I had. (I had completed over half already with everything projected into July)" Report Response
