What impressed you negatively?

"The manner in which the dean of admissions talked about the way you must select either the birmingham, huntsville, or tuscaloosa campus for your last two years. he made it sound like the school was doing us such a big favor to allow us to have some imput on where we will be placed for the last two years, even if it is not our first choice. also, there are three interviews that count for admissions, but if you have impressive research, you get an interview/informational session, and if you are a minority, you also have an inteview/informational session, so i ended up having 5 interviews in a row, while some of my counterparts had 3 and were able to take a break in between."
