What are your general comments?

"OHSU's interview day can be either very quick or extraordinarily long. I was lucky and had something in between. We (~11) were to arrive at the school by 8am and had a little talk with the dean. Afterwards, we were given our iteneraries. There are two one-on-one interviews with the faculty. Some interviewees had back to back and were done by noon. Others didn't start interviewing until 2 and had their last at 3:30. There isn't much direction during the wait time. Overall, the interviews were very relaxed, I did not get any ethical questions, and we pretty much just chatted about state and national government. I left the school around 3:15." Report Response
