One of my recent interviews had a surprising turn towards the end of the day. After interviewing with faculty, the program director pulled me aside to speak privately with me. (Now, I was literally having bowel incontinence as the PD approached me with this) What did I do? However I was pleasantly surprised to hear what the PD had to say: "We love and want you here and we hope that you love it here just as much". Keep in mind that I had no affliation with the program prior to the interview. (So I thought the PD was blowing smoke up my @ss) My response: thank you (but I was very reluctant because I aware of the game) with an uncomfortable smile. What am I supposed to think? Why did he pull ME aside? Did he pull others aside? Are PDs known to do this? Quite frankly I hate these games Anyway I just wanted to share this and see if anyone else had interesting interview experience, whether good or bad.
