What are your general comments?

"Like I said, student interview was kind of strange. He only had my name and alma mater. Faculty interview was fantistic--the guy was a real character and I truly enjoyed meeting him. It was pretty laid back. None of the interviewees were conversing much at the beginning of the day but had loosened up by the afternoon. Not enough was said about the curriculum or the research options." Report Response
