What are your general comments?

"First interview went about an hour, awesome guy - completely laid back, more conversational than anything. Dropped a few questions here and there. Even gave me a few questions where I could pick from and chose which I could give the best answer for, really worked to get the best out of you. Second interviewer was also a faculty member which is unusual - usually it's a student. He was much more serious but asked me a lot more personal questions and seemed to get to know me a lot more than the other guy did about my family and research. Great experience overall - was a lot happier with the way it went than I thought I would have been." Report Response
