What are your general comments?

"I think the three-on-three interview, especially because it was closed file, didn't give me a chance to let my interviewers know who I was. The dean's interview was very helpful, but felt too limited in time to tell much more. The rest of the day was wonderful, though. The students were enthusiastic willing to answer all my questions and the curriculum session was incredibly helpful. " Report Response
