What are your general comments?

"My experience was very good. It began 11:00 which gave you time to get up get ready and find the building. While we were there we were all in a room for a few hours some of which they spoke with us about the school and finances. My fellow interviewees and I engaged in conversation but there were a few awkward dry moments. The interview was very pleasant they asked the standard question but they seemed happy to get to the informal portion so they could really get into who I was. We even kept talking at least five minutes after the interview was supposed to be over. " Report Response
