What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewers weren't very responsive to my questions; though the interviews are closed file, this may actually not be beneficial to you because the interviewers spend a lot of time writing down what you say in response to their questions; this left me with the feeling that they weren't very engaged in the interview/conversation; some people told me that the interviews would be kick-back but I didn't sense this at all from my interviewers, which was a real disappointment; also, I've been told that some of the students there are a little bit disrespectful of the UCSF residents" Report Response

"Overall, I liked UCSF and its curriculum; just wish some of the faculty/students were more welcoming." Report Response
