What are your general comments?

"I had a cold and was on Sudafed so my memory is a little hazy. The interview went about 10 minutes long. (Is this a good thing?) I felt pinned down by the questions and don't feel that I performed that well. I think they were looking to see how I work under pressure. I'm usually very good at interviews. The rest of the day was great! The students were informative and loved the school, Dr. Steiner (a dean)was eager to talk to us and the tour of the facilities got me excited. Don't listen to those who say the building is old. The equipment and facilities are great. I will definately go here if they'll have me." Report Response
