What are your general comments?

"Overall it was very laid back. A small group of maybe twenty five people listened to the dean speak for around forty-five minutes before splitting up for interviews. We chatted and munched on snacks while waiting and went over our files to make sure they were complete. The interview itself was with two people, one faculty member and one practicing pharmacist in my case. They worked their questions into the conversation so it hardly seemed like an interview."
