What are your general comments?

"The interviews went great. The first one was laidback. The interviewer wanted to hear my entire life story. I was surprised by the amount of detail he wanted! This was my time to explain who I really am! The second interview was scary. The interviewer interrogated me. He tried to pick arguments with me. I was shocked because I hate to argue. So I answered the questions honestly and calmly! It worked pretty well. I wasn't sure how to feel about it afterwards but my acceptance showed that my responses were perfect even if he didn't agree with them. I think the key was to stick with my answer and refute his replies politely. I was also asked what I would do if I wasn't accepted and I told him I was already accepted. I think this was great because it made it look like I really wanted to go to school there since I took the effort to come to the interview even after receiving an acceptance. " Report Response
