What are your general comments?

"I had 3 interviews in the morning, lunch with MSTP students, then 3 more interviews, and an informal interview with the director. The first 3 (one with a student, 2 with faculty) evaluated me. Then the next two were for recruitment purposes. The last interviews were with the associate and program directors who evaluated me. They were very casual, conversational interviews. Most of the time the interviewer spent more time talking about their research and what they thought of Charleston. I really loved this experience; my first interview experience was an enjoyable one."
