What impressed you negatively?

"the tour guides were 4th years that were part of the student panel... and also interviewers. one of the guys that gave the school tour must have been having an off day because he mentioned a lot of negative things about the school. they encourage academic research and the buildings look like they were last decorated in the early 70s (pea green walls?)"

What are your general comments?

"they scheduled us to arrive between 9 and 10. those that got there earlier met other interviewees and occasionally a med student would introduce themselves and then walk to another table. the admissions director then talked with us about how we were all 1s (every applicant is rated a 1, 2, or 3) and that they had not started interviewing 2s yet. hmmm. he also told us that SA stresses on drawing in potential leaders in the community-something MCAT's and GPA can't predict.
