What impressed you negatively?

"The interview schedule was very disorderly and there was A LOT of waiting around. Granted, it wasn't the school's fault because the snow kept many of the interviewers from showing up on time or at all. I (and I'm sure some of the others in my interview group) felt a little abandoned and a lot bored. When I finally got to do my interview, my interviewer seemed very unengaged, stuck in a perfunctory task. " Report Response
