What impressed you negatively?

"cleveland isn't exactly the most happening place. also, our tour guide seemed to be selling the school through lies. for example, he said that case western would be receiving more NIH funds next year so as to be second most in the country. for some reason, i doubt that case western will have more funds than schools like penn, columbia, hopkins, and the like."

What are your general comments?

"in general, the experience was average. the interviewer wasn't exactly the warmest of individuals. he seemed to question my motivations; he criticized my essay, and he was excessively badmouthing schools like harvard and implying that case is perfect. other than the acutal interview, it was fairly enjoyable."
