What are your general comments?

"Didn't need to get there till around 11:30. Met with gayle pierce and everyone else in her office. She went over admin stuff (like housing, financial, etc). Lunch was okay...sandwiches and fruits. Interview with student was over lunch. Then if there was time, tour with your student.....sinch i knew what was over at the med school, he just showed me the anatomy lab. faculty interview was very laid back, although she threw me off by asking me a questions about my research right off the bat. Interview was standard questions. Overall, interview day was from 11:30 till 3:00. Can't complain about Southern Cali weather!! Only problem is that not much to do in Irvine itself but everyone drives so you can always drive up to LA or something." Report Response
