What impressed you negatively?

"my interviewed left me waiting for almost 40 minutes in a hospital waiting room. Obviously as a physician, he had things going on, but I found it disrespectful especially since I was not able to get any information to even confirm that he would still be able to see me. I was about 10 mins from leaving... also... the school is located in a bad area of philly, almost all students commute from a wide range of areas, the tour guides said that less then 50% of students attend class, not much class unity" Report Response
