What impressed you positively?

"I could disagree with an earlier positing more. I know who posted that impression. He was a complete jerk. He was negative from the moment he sat down. On the tour he embarassed all of us with his negativity. Dr. Haight saw what was going on before any of us. He just didn't want to be there. He had already interviewed at several schools. He says 10. Who knows. All I know is that he acted like a he was doing us a favor by being there. I was unsure if Dr. Haight would call him on it. All of us really liked each other and we all felt connected. Dr. Haight told him that he should not take that attitude into the interview and he still did it. What a waste of everyone's time. OK, I will buy that the Island isn't what I expected. There is a lot of construction going on. The campus was nice though. The anatomy lab was the best I ever saw. The students were all positive. I didn't get accepted, but if offered a chance to go I would take it. I heard some rumors about the curriculum changing and that concerns me, but only because they have such a good reputation as is."
