What impressed you negatively?

"Seemed like the students didn't like the area too much, seemed like students were pushed into primary care just to raise school rankings, my interview was with 2 people (didn't know who was my primary interviewer), weird interview questions, had an admissions chair sit next to me casually and start asking me questions while I was waiting to interview (that freaked me out and he never told me he was a chair), was deferred and never heard back essentially (even though they said they'd let us know), looked like the school was just trying to sell itself so hard it made many of us uncomfortable and the interview day was full of boring lectures."
