What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You might have to sit and wait for a long time after your scheduled interview time if your interviewer isn't finished with his previous student yet. Kind of stress-inducing for us, who're waiting and sweating. Also if the faculty interviewer is rushed for time, your interview can be just 15 min. BTW, the interviewer will be writing down your evaluation as you reply to his questions, so he/she might not be making too much eye contact with you (this was a good thing for me)." Report Response
