What impressed you negatively?

"My faculty interviewer was quite abrasive and seemed intent on finding out if I could deal with living in Pittsburgh. Not a fan of the grading system, and the competitive environment has a rep for being something of a shark tank. They're pretty cheap with your lunch budget. Had difficulty getting a student host even though I contacted people within plenty of time." Report Response
