What are your general comments?

"Drove to Baton Rouge in the morning to interview. There were 4 of us total. Dr Eubanks spoke for about 15-20 minutes on the status of LSU. Had two one-on-one intervieww, then went home. The whole thing took about an hour. My only comment would be to never judge the actual time you spend interviewing as a measure of how well you did. My first interview was about 15 minutes long and I had a great time, but my second interview with Dr. Eubanks was like 5 minutes. I fumbled over some words b/c I was nervous. He got up to adjust his seat and I thought he was showing me to the door, so I stood up too! Then after an awkward moment of silence, I sat back down. The last part of the interiew he was telling me how great an applicant I was, but it's hard to tell how the committee will vote, and that if I had any plans if I didn't get in. I pretty much thought right there he was telling me to re-apply, but after about two months of waiting - I got my acceptance letter!" Report Response
