What impressed you negatively?

"The cost of Creighton is enormous and they don't offer a lot of options for financial aid outside of loans or enlisting in the military. Also, the day was ridiculously long. You really do go from 830am-4pm if not longer! Last, the interviewers don't have a lot of time to get to know you and didn't ask a lot of questions you would probably like to be asked (i.e. specifically about your research, more experiences you've had). It's pretty limited and I felt like I wasn't asked enough questions." Report Response
