What impressed you negatively?

"Facilities are rather run down and the school's curriculum is not even slightly innovative. My interviewers didn't ask any questions and my faculty interviewer wrapped things up in about 25 minutes. Oh, and he mentioned that UCI isn't so great if you want to be a leader in your field. WTF?" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Decent medschool interviewer with a rather lousy faculty interviewer who belittled the school and informed me that he wouldn't go into medicine if he had to do it all over again.
