What are your general comments?

"My three interviews went very quickly. My total interview time was about 50 minutes, and I was the first to leave. However, they actually allot for forty minutes for each of the three interviews. They liked me so they were done with me quickly, and essentially told me that I would have spot. Therefore, do not be upset if your interview are really short, because that might be a good thing. As far as the school goes, it is a really great school, and the facilities are up and running. If you are concerned about the condition of the school after katrina, do not be. Everything that was at LSU before Katrina, is there now (and then some). Also, contrary to popular myth, LSU does have a fully equipped hospital (University Hospital), eventhough Charity hospital is now defunct (it was rundown before the storm)." Report Response
