What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities are depressing. The school might as well be an in-patient psychiatric facility. All of the hallways look the same. There are cameras everywhere. Security does not let applicants in the building to locate the interview location early. I heard that security actually chased down a student because she forgot to swipe her ID card. The dress code is strictly enforced. They say they want to promote professionalism, but professionalism is about attitude, not dress. Some of the best doctors I know work in jeans. The dress code is also sexist. Men are required to dress up and wear ties. Women wear whatever they want. PBL is unimpressive. There are a lot of issues they simply do not discuss, or perhaps that are taboo to discuss. Like, it's okay to mention how nurses spread disease by not washing their hands, but it's not okay to mention that doctor's ties can also spread disease. The interviewers asked pointless questions and did not let me finish answering. One of the student-body presidents wasted our time bragging about how he's better than his classmates. He called some of his classmates "idiots"." Report Response
