What impressed you negatively?

"facilities look old and run down (except for the new anatomy lab). basically didn't see much of anything on the tour. students don't seem too happy/enthusiastic and there doesn't seem to be much camaraderie. no videotaped standardized patient rooms or simulator (though they claim to have the latter). neighborhood is not nice and you'll have to pay more and commute to live in a nicer neighborhood. the only school where they mentioned failing a class as an actual possibility whereas at others it seems they will catch you before you fail.
