What impressed you negatively?

"The day was entirely too long - From 7:45 to about 3:00. Further, there was alot of ''fluff'' in the day. Ex - 30 to 45 minutes going through a rental guide with an admissions person telling us what apartments are good and a 30 to 45 minute meeting with financial aide telling us how much debt we'll be in when I graduate from school. No doubt this is valuable info (except I don't want to think about $200K in student loans or the $3K a month over 10 years i'll have to cough up to pay it), but I'll corss that bridge when I get there and would have rather been done 1 or 2 hours sooner!"
