What are your general comments?

"My interview day was the first of the 2010 cycle in case anyone was curious. It was closed file because they said everyone had the numbers they were looking for. It was very laid back. I interviewed with one Ph.D science faculty and two third year students. They had a brief presentation, then interviews, then the tour. I liked that they did the interviews first, as it gave us the rest of the day to relax and really take everything in as opposed to being nervous." Report Response
