What are your general comments?

"The day was relatively quick and easy. After some presentations about the school and research, you tour and have lunch. Then you have your interview. There is only one interview (versus the two interview format of many schools). I was a bit nervous during the day for two reasons: 1) Miami is very hectic for a small-town person like me and 2) I didn't prepare and come in as relaxed as I should have. My interviewer made me feel a bit nervous, but that was because I was not giving clear enough answers (again, my fault, not his). The day wraps up and you're sent off. You find out the school's decision about 3 weeks after the interview by e-mail. " Report Response
