Not far from the truth. It may have changed for this year (I interviewed last year) as the chair was leaving the program and talk was the PD was going to replace him.
The PD came in and got us one by one and went through our application with a RED MARKER as if he was grading us. Seemed EXTREMELY disinterested (and talking to others, it wasn't just my application ) and then the chair went over those red marks on our application. It was actually kinda comical. Total face time with the two of them was probably 20 minutes tops.
The facilities are nice at SL's, though. Word is the resident's don't love the program, but you'll have to talk to them yourselves when you interview.
