What impressed you negatively?

"First off, the dental school entrance was hard to find and my cab driver had no idea where the dental school was and ended up circling the block three times before dropping me off, luckily at the back entrance of the dental school. Then no one could tell me where the Admissions office was. After FINALLY finding the Admissions office (I was lucky I got there so early), I had to wait around for the interviewers. The Financial Aid lady ran off unexpectedly so I waited around again for an hour before I got a tour with two students. " Report Response
