What impressed you negatively?

"We met only two students the entire day, one of whom seemed very bothered that he had to give us a tour. Both my interviewers and the admissions director talked at length about how great DMS students are, and I was disappointed that I didn't get to meet many of them and find out whether I'd fit in here. Also, the medical school itself is a dump. Old facilities, feels like you're in a basement." Report Response
