What impressed you negatively?

"The students didn't seem to be very motivated, and my tour guide was dressed in sweats and a tank top. She spent more time talking about how many parties the medical students throw than the curriculum. Overall, I felt that the school spent too much time during the interview focusing on the social life of the school so that I came away with very little information on the curriculum."
