What are your general comments?

"I had 2 faculty interviewers. They were both very friendly and down-to-earth. My first interview lasted over an hour; we got to talking and he wanted to introduce me to some people he knew that had graduated from my college. It was a very low stress experience. You'll also have lots of down-time to explore the area (I went to the library, MEC, and a cafe). " -Posted 01/30/2007 | Report Response
