What impressed you negatively?

"The school was awful. The students were not happy. This is the first school where the students pointed out many negatives. They don't have time for fun. They mentioned that there were negatives, but were reluctant to point out any specifically -- probably because they work for the admissions office. It was the biggest waste of a day. The Dean doesn't stop talking. Then we were locked in a room with admissions people who read sheets of paper about the school. Instead of exploring and talking to students, we had to listen to this lady go on and on. It was so boring, I could barely stay awake. The only time to talk to students was during lunch and kind of during the tour. The tour was awful. They brought us into an anatomy lab and we had to see all of the cadavers, right after lunch."
