What impressed you negatively?

"Our tour of Grady seemed incomplete (after I interviewed at Emory the next week). Our guides (4th years) had very limited access compared to the Emory guide (also a 4th year). We sat in on a class (I think second-year) and the teacher had to call out about six students before someone answered her question correctly :-/ Students were coming in and out of class the whole time with mac and cheese or something equally fattening at 8 AM." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
