What are your general comments?

"Very laid back and informative. I got the morning interviews, so after a brief introduction with breakfast, I immediately went to my two interviews. My first interview with a PhD professor went very well and we ended up conversing for 45 minutes despite the time limit being 30 minutes. My second interview with an ID doctor went well too, but he spent most of his time explaining the opportunities at their school rather than asking me questions. We ate lunch and then went on a tour of the campus." Report Response
