What impressed you negatively?

"No one came to greet us in the morning, no one gave us folders or schedules for the day until we finally asked about them. The dean who gave the introduction was nice and informative, but the secretary was unprofessional (ie telling us about bad interviewers). She obviously shouldn't represent the entire school, but she speaks to the poor admissions office and overall bad day. We were supposed to have lunch with students and NO ONE came to sit or eat with us. Then, students were supposed to give us a tour and no one showed up to do that. The entire day really seemed like Harvard could care less about the applicants and knows they'll get a good class anyway because of their name. It was a terrible day.
