What impressed you negatively?

"my first interviewer seemed distracted and a bit aggressive. i had heard that the interviews were very relaxed (and appartently everyone else who interviewed had a great time), so this was a bit of a surprise. i still felt ok about the interview and it didn't detract at all from the excellent impression the school made on me."
