What are your general comments?

"I had a second closed-file interview with a subcommittee chair that lasted about 20 minutes. It was also very laidback and sweet. The lunch was the best--they serve you at the Queeny Tower restaurant. Yes, an actual restaurant meal! I was also paired up with a non-adcom faculty for lunch, and he turned out to be the coolest, nicest person ever. That was a very sweet one hour..." Report Response
