What are your general comments?

"It was a great interview day! All the faculty were easy to talk with, and the interviews were more conversational than direct questions and answers. They really wanted to know about you and your interests. Of the 7 interviews, only one was somewhat stressful, and I think that interviewer was just tired from seeing applicants all day. Several of the interviews aren't used for evaluation, but they function as recruiting sessions. Overall, I enjoyed the day and was extremely impressed. This place may not be on the tip of everyone's tongue yet, but it will be soon. " Report Response
