What are your general comments?

"It was a great interview experience with one closed-file, short student interview and one open-file longer faculty interview. Don't let the small talk with fourth-year students who are on the committee scare you because they're really cool and just want to get to know you and answer questions for you. There's really no reason to stress and it was a much more relaxed day than I thought it would be. Also, my interview experience was slightly hectic because they had just moved into their new building and the hurricane was a-comin! oof was that a mess. Anyway, they're not all about research or competition either - you'll see when you get there how laid back the students and faculty really are." Report Response
