What are your general comments?

"The day consists of an interview, lunch, and tour. The interview can be low stress. However, it is in my opinion that an interview with the Dean is less stressful than an interview with someone else because the other interviewers are trying to get a good enough impression so that they can convey something meaningful to the Dean and, therefore, have to get more out of their interviewees."
