What are your general comments?

"Previous comments are right--there's a lot of downtime during the day. I had to leave the faculty member presentation early to catch a cab to my first interview across town (they give you vouchers). My interviews really weren't anything special, asked me about research and experiences. I'm kind of disappointed there was none of the earth-shattering HMS/diversity/worldview questions we all expect." -Posted 01/04/2007 | Report Response
