What are your general comments?

"After they fed us breakfast(!), we had an orientation session for half an hour. Then I had a chance to talk for a bit with the other candidates that were going to be in my panel. Then we had our panel interview which wasn't as stressful as I thought it would be AT ALL! It was really easy. Then we had about an hour and a half of down time during which we had our one-on-one interview with the dean or assistant dean for 15 minutes. At noon we had lunch, tours, mock PBL session, and then a reception. I was done at 3:30!" Report Response
