What are your general comments?

"The whole experience was more stressful than another interview I'd had. They provide some food in the morning which is nice. Someone did a presentation on the curriculum which was way too detailed and boring. My student interviewer said he wasn't told until that morning that he was going to interview me. Not the way to make someone feel too welcome. But then again, nothing catastrophic happened either." Report Response
