What impressed you negatively?

"The tour was not as comprehensive as it should have been so I felt like I didn't get a good look at the hospital. I got a good look at the lecture halls, etc, but we only saw basically the entrance of one floor of the hospital. Our tour guide (he usually didn't do tours but all second years had a mandatory meeting that day or something like that) was practical but kind of discouraging. It's really nice when I don't always see med students who are always like ''This is the best school EVER'' since I think it seems kind of generic and fake...but this tour guide was a little over the top with his negative comments. " Report Response
