What are your general comments?

"my interview day started in the morning. sylvia robinson gave us a brief introduction while we had juice and donuts/muffins which was a nice touch. then i had my student interview(while some had facutly)-this was open file and my student who was from n.d. was this amazingly nice guy. he was really balanced-had a life with his wife and stressed that he was really happy at pritzker. after lunch and tour with students i went to my interview with ryan who was extremely nice although asked tough questions/and checked me in a way that was meant to figure out who the "real" me was. she was trying to get past prepared answers. at the end of the day i touchbased briefly with sylvia. don't ask stupid questions at the beginning of the day. one kid in our group was cocky and asked how long he could "sit on his acceptance to pritzker as he was planning on being interviewed and accepted at a number of places". blagh!"
