What impressed you negatively?

"My faculty interview was a physician who had never done an interview before. I was one of the first people he had ever interviewed, so it seemed really unstructured and he talked about himself a lot. Also, he kept alluding to the fact that I wasn't going to get in. It was hard to act normal after hearing that, but I think I did a pretty godo job. " Report Response

"As I said before, the faculty interview was a disaster (but I don't think it was actually my fault). The student interviewer was very friendly and had only the best intentions. The campus looked sort of dingy and the hospital is an ancient bulding that looks like it is falling apart. " Report Response
