What impressed you negatively?

"facillities weren't all that great/building was really old. the adcom officially stated that the interview is closed file, but the interviewer did know where i did my undergrad....made me wonder. also, i didn't know that my interviewer would invite a P4 student to sit in, but he ended up being really cool and didn't ask me any questions. It was actually a good buffer between interviewer and myself so i guess it was a negative turned positive" Report Response
