What are your general comments?

"Overall good experience. Hotel was nice, Dr. Haight helps you out so much. The interviewers are nice, the students are very friendly, basically it was a great day. I liked the panel format, but I just didn't feel like my interviewers were asking me interesting questions. For example, one interviewee has been abroad, is an artist, and got to speak about teaching. Those things are fun to talk about, but no one asked me about my art background or my college athletics experience, or my teaching. It just seemed odd." Report Response
