What impressed you negatively?

"The school definately had a back up vibe to it. The school's facilities are old, student body seems not to over enthusiastic, research opportunites are next to nil. My second interviewer brought a 3rd year student for a 2 on 1. He was extremely argumentative and not a very friendly person to be around with and imho, should NOT be interviewing. He was a pediatric neurologist and when I asked him what he thinks of the child obesity issue and how he handles obese children in the clinic, he basically told me he does nothing and that he can't do anything because the parents are fat too. He even started to get mad at that point which is why I droped the issue. Very bad attitude to have as our country is facing an obesity epidemic and doctors like him are the reasons why.
