What impressed you negatively?

"First of all they did not have ANY of my documents supposedly. The interview was supposed to be an open one but the interviewer did not have any of my info or my recommendation letters, transcripts, NOTHING. After checking with the Student Affairs "office" (a shambled mess of a place) I was told they did not have my info either!!! Why was I accepted for an interview then? Anyway I had to call my undergrad school to fax over the rest of the info I didn't have on me. The interviewer also sent the first 20 mins of the interview checking his email and replying them (interview was in his office)then he proceeded to eat his lunch for through the remainder of the interview."
