What are your general comments?

"the interviews were disorganized. My faculty interviewer was late but she apologized. She seemed unfamiliar with my file so we discussed my background and interests before continuing on to the usual spiel. The student interviewer seemed to have been prepped on selling the school (oh you want to do research- we have great research!). I've heard horror stories about County Hospital but I couldnt get an honest opinion there. Lunch was great but the campus is terrible- very tiny (a high school atmosphere) in the middle of nowhere.
