What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"Interview groups are very, very small. There were only 7 of us at my group. You get interviewed with 2 faculty members: I had the associate dean and an associate professor. They didn't have any situational questions (thank goodness) but mostly the basic ones. They want to make sure you know what you're getting yourself into and that you fit their core values. Don't stress. They seem to interview on fridays, meet on the monday right after to make a decision. I got a call that same monday. =0)" Report Response
