What impressed you negatively?

"A medical student actually bagged on my school when he saw the list of interviews for the day (in the admissions office), not knowing I was in the room! It came to his attention that I was there, and we held a brief conversation (about unrelated things) in which he was extremely condescending toward me. I met several med students that day who seemed cool, down-to-earth types, but that one experience left a very negative impression on me." Report Response
