What impressed you negatively?

"A LOT. First, they already filled their class BEFORE our group interviewed so we were all competing for a spot on the wait list....and they decided to drop this bomb on us right BEFORE we were to go on our interviews at TGH. Nothing like a ton of bricks before your interview. They could have at least waited until later to drop the news. Also, they kept comparing themselves to UF, FSU, and Miami by putting the other schools down. They appeared very insecure. A student tourguide made negative comments aimed directly at the University of Florida which was uncalled for. I was there to learn about USF....I didn't care for their "dogging" tactics for recruitment. Anyway, I found the USF staff (for the most part) and students to be extremely unprofessional. Also, my first interviewer was 15 minutes late (for a 30 min interview), and my second interviewer was 20 min late!!! (a dean and a medical student, so it wasn't as if they were busy doing surgery or something.) Very unprofessional in my opinion." Report Response
