What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"I didn't thnk I did too well in the interview. The healthcare reform funding question threw me off, and the interviewer stuck on that subject. Nevertheless, he was friendly and attentive most of the time. The lunch was pretty early (10:30 AM), and the presentations were nice. Even though I didn't think I did too well, I got accepted about a week and a half later. The assistant dean was also very friendly and helpful, and told us that there was usually a 2-3 week turnaround time for a decision." Report Response
