What impressed you negatively?

"The cost to attend this school much like any private school is astronomical. I am not sure how I feel about the openess of the clinical years, I think I would prefer something more structured. Also, we were told that the interview would be closed file and that the nterviewers would not have our grades or anything. Hence, I was a little suprised when one of them looked at a sheet w my scores on them and asked me about an MCAT score. " Report Response
