What are your general comments?

"The faculty interview was very easy. My interviewer seemed genuinely interested in my future, and he gave me a lot of great advice on how to reach my goals. It seemed more like an advising session, and he was more than willing to let the conversation go rather than just stick with the questions. The student interview was very low key with lots of opportunity to get questions answered. Overall, the closed file method wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, you just have to make sure you prioritize before what you think is important to get across, especially when they start off with the broad, "Tell me about yourself.""
