What impressed you negatively?

"short notice - I got an email thursday before a monday interview, and I did not check my email until that saturday. felt like I could have been better prepared if I had had more notice. So if you applied to VCU/MCV, CHECK YOUR EMAIL EVERY DAY - also, if you have a junk mail filter on your email, turn it off, because VCU/MCV sends out invitations in bulk, and this triggers a lot of email servers to see the message as trash!"
