What are your general comments?

"I had one subcomittee interview which was closed-file and only ~20 minutes. It wasn't enough time to really express anything convincingly; she just asked what activities I did, etc. My hour-long interview with a faculty member consisted of him talking and me listening. I didn't really say much, so it's hard to tell if I did well or not." Report Response
