"Introduction by Dr. Smith wasn't that interesting, but it was held in a very nice little auditorium. The interviews were all in the same nice building, which was convenient. Questions were very low-pressure, mostly just to talk about yourself. Lunch was decent, but some of the students who were supposed to answer questions were half-dead from exhaustion.
