What are your general comments?

"The interview was open-file, but might as well have been closed, as my first interviewer hadn't even bothered to read it. He asked me where else I had interviewed, a question that I understand to be technically not allowed, and which put me in a very difficult position. My second interviwer was so uninterested in speaking to me that he didn't even make eye contact. He kept checking the clock, and cut our 1-hr interview to about 25 m. I understand that people are busy, but I took time and effort to visit the school! Definitely not a good impression." Report Response
