What impressed you negatively?

"My faculty interviewer (who I'm not sure was faculty or just an alum), though very friendly also, stared at me during the interview instead of interacting or responding in any way. It was distracting and felt unnatural, though he was kind enough to warn me beforehand." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That it was going to be so hot! I wore a fall weight suit and the air conditioning in one of the buildings was broken. I got lost on the way to my faculty interview so I wish I would have asked for specific directions. The building setups were confusing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, very good. There were only 10 of us interviewing, so it made for a nice size group. Lunch was tasty and everyone got to talk a little, which calmed all of our nerves. The chat with current students at the end was a nice end to the day. You're not being evaluated at that point, so you can relax and bring up any remaining questions you may have. An overall positive experience." Report Response
