What impressed you negatively?

"I was unable to meet any med students, they happened to stop by when we were all on the tour. Some of the facilities that were emphasized were silly things like the spa, dry cleaners, and game stop. I did not like having two people interviewing me, I found it hard to make eye contact, I had to keep looking at the one who asked the question or switching my head back and forth. It took three people for them to answer my question as to when they thought we all would hear back, I thought it was a relatively simple question though. They took a long time to meet over my file, which as longer than they had originally said, about 2 1/2 months. They claimed they had plenty of spots left in their class when I interviewed in October, but when they started reviewing files, people from my interview time were automatically accepted/alternate, meaning they did not have plenty of spots left."
