No Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My first interviewer was very rude. He arrived 20 minutes late, took/made 3 phone calls during my already abbreviated interview, and spent most of the time reading my file (which he hadn't read ahead of time). He only barked out 1 line questions every few minutes, then went back to reading my file. My interview ended 10 minutes early. I could tell throughout he was just asking questions from their evaluation sheet. "are you compassionate?" "did you grow up poor?" "are you humble?" If you don't have the time to actually interview somebody, don't sign up for it. Also, although med students gave us a tour, there weren't enough of them to take us to our interviews, and most of them were in offices that aren't accessible from main hallways (behind receptionists and locked doors) ,so we were made to explore and find them on our own."
