What impressed you negatively?

"Pretty much everything...I couldn't find the room where we were supposed to meet, I had to ask the woman cleaning the bathroom (she was super nice), no one showed up to talk to us until 15 mins after we were told the day would start, the interviewers were late getting there, my first interviewer pretty much attacked me the whole time and was very negative (im not sure if he was acting or something like that but I did not appreciate that treatment), the facilities were old and run down, student lounge was in the basement, deans talk was uninspiring to say the least, seems like they were almost forced into designing a more up to date curriculum.
