What impressed you negatively?

"Quite a bit. The day was horribly organized. I was told the wrong time for the interview and arrived two hours early. (They were aware of this problem, but did nothing to correct it.) The dean never showed for the opening presentation, though he did answer questions later. This location doesn't have a cafeteria or financial aid office. There is a very small class size."

What are your general comments?

"Overall I thought the day was pretty disappointing. There was a half-hour introduction, and then a half-hour tour given by some med students who also answered questions. Then the students were interviewed by one of three different three-person panels. I was lucky and went first, but some of the other applicants hung out in the student lounge until their interview.
