What impressed you negatively?

"Very large school seemed impersonal, and the faculty didn't really seem to care about teaching. It sounds like the still just talk at the students, and have a traditional curriculum. (As opposed to the systems based approach) One of the tour guides didn't really seem excited about being a student there, and said a few bad things about the school. The computers were still using CRTs, which made the wonder how old they were." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had an elderly interviewer, who was friendly but I really felt like I needed to carry the interview forward, as he didn't really prompt me much. He asked me to explain my research, and I still don't think he understood it after I explained it. He was very brief, maybe 20 minutes before he asked me if I had any questions. I had a few and then we just talked about random things for about 30 minutes." Report Response
