"Pretty good. My legs fell asleep because we spent a real long time sitting through the first few speakers in the morning. All the other interviewees and our student interviewers were very nice.

He also asked a lot of questions about strengths, weaknesses, etc. Faculty interview was very laid back." Report Response
