What impressed you negatively?

"I had a horrible regional interview that I am incredibly upset about. My interviewer asked no questions about my background, and when I volunteered personal info, she changed the subject. She cut me off when I answered her questions about ethics. After about thirty minutes, her friend came over and sat behind us. She then claimed she had errands to do and that we had to end the interview (while I was in mid sentence.) After I got up to leave, she sat with her friend, as if they had a planned meeting. The worst part was when the interviewer stated that she thought my college only focused on writing and not on research. I had to remind her about my research background and what a science major was like at my school. She didn't seem to change her opinion after my explanation. This interviewer obviously came to the table with preconceived notions about what I was like and obviously did not read my application before asking questions. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Duke needs to re-evaluate how they perform regional interviews. I feel I was poorly represented by this interview, and it in no way improved my impression of Duke. I seriously am not exaggerating when I say that of the ten interviews I had, this was the worst and most puzzling." Report Response
