What are your general comments?

"I got there on time, and the dean had already started talking. His presentation was very impressive and encouraging for the students. My first interview was scheduled in the wrong place (luckily I arrived early, asked someone, and got there on time). I lucked out with the interview, because we had a lot of things in common and had an enjoyable hour long talk. Then lunch was "interesting," chicken fried steak and potatoes (needed caffene for my last interview after that). My last interviewer was also awesome - we talked about balancing family and profession. No hard/ ethical questions. I got the sense that neither was on the adcom, tho both said they wanted me back next year. :)" Report Response
