What are your general comments?

"It was rather odd; she chastized me about my grades for awhile, and we went into excruciating detail about my experiences and volunteer work...and then suddenly in the middle she pulled out the evaluation form and started verbally going through it and telling me how I'd done on everything, culminating in grilling me about whether I'd come there if accepted and how it compared to the other places I'd interviewed (that sure came back to bite me). Definitely the only interview that had me sweating so far." Report Response
