What impressed you negatively?

"My first interview was one of the worst experiences of my life. The interviewer was the rudest, cockiest, most presumptious man I had ever met in my life. He was unorganized; he had the wrong person's information in front of him the entire time. He grilled me about the death of my mother to the point where I was almost in tears, he interrupted my answer to almost every question, and he assumed that my long-distance relationship with my boyfriend would cause me to fail classes. I wanted to hit him on several occasions. Also, the interview went longer than it was supposed to, making me late for my second interview. He seemed more amused with himself and the ridiculous questions he was asking, than how qualified I was to go to the school. I wrote the school a letter to complain about him. I got in eventually, but I don't know if that letter helped or not. At least it didn't hurt my chances too much. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
