What are your general comments?

"Overall very laid back and easy-going. There is a lot of negative feedback here, but from what the student hosts said it seems like there's really just one evil faculty interviewer who is most likely the basis for all of the negative comments (so don't worry!!!!). Everyone I interviewed with had an extremely easy time. I'm still not entirely sold on this place, but the interview/tour left me with a good impression. Another thing to note for future interviewees - it was pretty obvious that they have a set of about 10 questions that ALL interviewees get." Report Response
