What are your general comments?

"While I was awestruck by the facilities and reputation, the actual interview itself was the worst of all my interviews. It was mostly the format with the structure and the awkwardness of them just sitting there looking at me, not smiling or conversing at all. The questions were very generic and broad. The tour was good and the rest of the day wasn't bad. I just wish that they would change their interview format so that they can actually get to know their applicants as real people."
