What impressed you negatively?

"They have a interview "mom" who is a wife of one of the doctors on faculty, but the one I had was really opinionated about the economy and pretty much thought everyone else's opinion was incorrect. Also, my second interviewer was really rude and kept interrupting me. When I was talking about my research, he interrupted me and said, "It's not that I don't care, but I don't. I'm not going to remember, but I just wanted to know you did research." Thanks pal, you're a good PR agent for the school. Also, it was very disorganized. The student volunteers for lunch never showed up so a roaming student just volunteered. Also, every student that was with us was from North Carolina. I got NO out-of-state perspective."
