What are your general comments?

"It was a very stereotypical interview. They gave us a little article to read and then half an hour later, during the actual interview, they asked us to summarize what we had read. The questions were so cardboard-like; no personality to them. The facilities were pretty standard, nothing special. The tour guide didn't show up so Dr. Wise showed us around instead. I left the interview with a one-word summary of my feelings in my head: eh." Report Response
