What impressed you negatively?

"1. I knew they have a dress code, and it really did not bother me until I saw the school, students and faculty. They say that students have to dress professionally in order to develop professionalism, but...faculty on other hand did not look and behave professional to me. I saw several professors with diamonds in their ears (I do not mind men wear jewelry, but not chunks of diamonds, yak!). And constant cheesy jokes from heads of department, lots of jokes about alcohol. I came from pretty unique city in US which has lots famous attractions, and when one of the head of department met me and learned that I am from that city, he immediately remembered that they make good beer...One of the student who interviewed with me was constantly picked on regarding his girl friend who came with him and was waiting for him downstairs. Is this professional? Maybe they tried really hard to be friendly...I don't know. 2. School looks too sterile, almost like you are at the hospital. Hallways are very long and narrow. They have no lounges for students to relax and hang out at. Work out area is tiny and dark. 2. I asked if we can see some of their technology, simulators. The tour guide replied that they have one, but it is on the 4th or 5th floor and nobody can go there. 3. Attendance is mandatory, are we applying to med school or high school? 4. The school is practically is one building and huge parking lot, no cozy areas around it to study outside, to have a picnic and so on. 5. Dr. Wise mentioned that the school is like one big family and everybody knows everything about everybody. 6. The whole day was not very informative. We sat a lot in one conference room and listened to Dr. Wise about curriculum. 7. One of the students who were having lunch with us, said that when they signed up to meet with prospective students they were giving some text to memorize and mention it during conversation with us. Ha..., how about just honest opinion coming straight from the students? 8. Students seemed too busy to stop by and talk to us and just to be friendly; maybe they were too busy thinking what shirt and tie they have to wear tomorrow. I am not exaggerating about ties. All guys have to wears ties and dress shirts, and I saw lots of girls wearing hills and skirts. 8. The tour was very lame. " Report Response
