What are your general comments?

"It was a different experience, unlike any other interview I've gone to. I'm from out of state and so getting around town was pretty difficult. Be careful when you ask for directions because they can't really inform you. They either don't know because they don't know street names, or they give you incomplete/vague directions that will leave you going in circles. The interviews were pretty chill. The interview with Dr. Izutsu was very helpful/informative since he broke down my application as to how I was granted an interview. He was very direct, and a little dry. " Report Response
