What impressed you negatively?

"The school would not give your interview times until the day of your interview. Everyone had to be there at 7am and then they gave you the interview schedule and told you to sit in the hall and wait. There was a campus wide tour and the vet school tour scheduled for one hour each. The rest of the time you were supposed to sit in the hall and wait.
