comment Developer failing developer interviews
Check out this video: channel9.msdn.com/Events/ALM-Summit/ALM-Summit-3/… What you're describing is what they call the "Knuth Fanatic" interviewing anti-pattern, and they use almost exactly your verbiage about it being something you would have been better qualified to answer as a student.

comment Partitioning code into assemblies for the sake of logical seperation
One thing that I've found useful in situations like that (a sprawling solution and political resistance to consolidation) is to create your own solutions that include relevant subsets of the projects. This wipes out your long build/re-build times and makes the feedback loop much faster, especially if you are running some kind of continuous testing tool. You only have to run the big solution's build before checkins.

comment What would help when refactoring a large method to ensure that I don't break anything?
+1 for the use of "archaeology" alone. That's the same term I use to describe this activity and I think that's a great way to put it (also thought the answer was good -- I'm not really that shallow)
