What impressed you negatively?

"I did not feel welcomed at school. When I asked director of admission about in state tuition, since I'm out of state ...she replied that I probably will not get it anyway. Compare to other schools that at least it was said that you can apply for in state tuition and if you are rejected you can replay and appeal for in state tuition and probably you will get it. I do not think she was a good director of admission at all....They have mention that there is so little minority students enrolled at their program, but at the same time they have asked me to take TOEFL, when I have already done so and will be getting B.S. this December. It is like I am getting less efficient in my English. Even if I get accepted there I would not go there, other school that I have interview at made me feel welcome ....was like a day and night compare to UMN....Plus tuition is ridiculously expensive...let me ask for what???....no stimulation lab, facility is old.....If you look at good school apply to Marquette University, and Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine.
