What impressed you negatively?

"First, the chair of the selection committee was not there. He usually concludes the day, and no one was there to conclude anything. So a group of us went to the admissions office to say bye, and they had already left at 5 pm! Also, the day was too long. Really. The food was just sandwiches. Moreover, my original interviewer had an emergency and the interviewer I got placed with knew nothing about my file and I had nothing in common with him. Oh, and I was lucky enough to be the only one to have back to back interviews, although they did apologize for that." Report Response
