"How fun Dr.Izutsu would be." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I heard mixed comments about Dr.Izutsu - scary, fun, intimidating. He comes off a bit standoff-ish, but he's really a nice guy. Go to his interview with confidence, but don't over-do it. My other two interviewers were both elderly faculty members. With these age group you may get the impression that they don't care about you - don't be fooled! Make sure you stay upbeat and assertive (but not aggressive) throughout the whole thing. Do some background research on your interviewers ahead of time for questions. Didn't seem to get my interviewers too excited but obviously didn't hurt me." Report Response
