What impressed you negatively?

"stress interview, on one of my interviews i was told nothing stood out on my application, and that this interview would be short. On another he asked my why I was not more involved, and really I just felt as I was being grilled. Everyone else on the other hand had great interviewers so I guess I just lucked out. They werent responsive to my answers either. again dont know if id fit in here, some of the students seemed very nerdy. They had 1st years giving us the tour, because 2nd years were unavailable. Showed how much they cared i thought. They did not even give us a tour of the damn hospital, library or anything." Report Response
