What impressed you negatively?

"Very immature students, most claimed they were not interested in attending class regularly and were 'just squeaking by'...Host student appeared to be more interested in binge drinking and the bars than schoolwork. Lots of very wealthy students who don't seem interested in entering primary care or practicing in underserved areas. Admissions people spent more time bad-mouthing other schools (the big, bad, impersonal, overly competitive state schools...) than selling their own product. Student interviewer was very awkward and was unprepared to answer my questions. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
