What impressed you negatively?

"this interview day was terrible. This is my 6th of the cycle and i can honestly say the quality of interviewers was so low compared to others at my other schools. one interviewer made me wait outside for 30 minutes while he met with a student, making me late to my next interview. he also kept asking how i would balance family life with medicine (asking it in 3 different ways), a question i doubt he would have grilled a man about. the next interviewer was very judgmental - saying, "you did well at a top college, why would you actually come here?" and proceeded to stare with boredom as i answered. i mean, if he is going to be judgmental about my application, i don't see why i should consider this school. my experience was NOT unique. On the way back to the admissions office at the end of the day i met with 3 other applications who had all had negative experiences. 1 said his first interviewer literally did not know he was coming and did not review his materials beforehand. another said her interviewer spent the entire time dissing the healthcare system as opposed to getting to know her. If you have options, do not come here." Report Response
