What impressed you negatively?

"The interview process was amazing! They are a little bit full of themselves but the quality of the program and interview process supports this. It is just surprising when they said "Do not call to find out if you are accepted or not. We understand some people accept the first program they get into, but we are not worried. If you don't want the spot, somebody else will." A bit ballsy, especially since they tell you an answer will be provided within 3-4 weeks when it can take much longer." Report Response
