What impressed you negatively?

"The only awkward part was meeting with Dr. Duncan, the dean of addmisions. After our 3 regular interviews he asked each of us to come into his office and talk for about 5 min. if he had never met us before. It was really awkward, and I thought it went awful. When I was done, I went back in the room where the other applicants were and they were all saying the same thing.
