What are your general comments?

"Overall very laid back. My interviewer asked some questions that he wanted specific answers to, more to make a point then to see how I felt about the issue/topic at hand, which was a little strange. However, the students were great (I stayed with two M2s, which I highly recommend, good advice and less stress coming to a city for the first time). Although I was assured that this wasn't typical St.Louis weather, it was snowing pretty hard the whole time I was there, so be prepared! " Report Response
