What impressed you negatively?

"Durham is not the most exciting place, the facilities are not the best looking, the morning talk is completely disorganized and I got nothing out of it, the student tour guide was very indifferent, did not seem excited to be here and showed us the undergraduate campus...hello? I'd like to see the hospital and where I'll be for the next 4 years. He was reserved, quiet and aloof. The lunch could be better. Too many abstract questions were asked...I wonder what they got out of the interviews. I thought I would have liked Duke, but I felt completely out of place and uncomfortable.
