split into 2 groups; 1 for interviews, 1 for tours.
interviews are 8min w/PD, 8min w/ APD, 15 min each with 2 other faculty, with 1 break somewhere in there.
residents available to talk in between interviews and tours
lunch is great and is during conference. lemon chicken parmesan (or something), pasta rosé (or something), salad, rice & beans, brownies
residents available to chat before lunch and after conference
not too much walking

a lot of "what questions do you have about the program" and "what do you want to know about pittsburgh". fine if you get this once or twice, but not for every interview.
a lot of down time in between tours and interviews
pre-IV dinner at the Porch-massive portions, food is ok
