What are your general comments?

"I thought that this was the hardest interview that I had been on to date. My interviewer was very interrogational, and seemed unimpressed with me. She would not accept my answers (e.g. her: why did you quit pre-med? me: b/c i didn't feel that I was a competitive candidate at the time and wanted to concentrate on my family issues. her: but why did you feel your grades weren't good-- you went to a good school. me: My advisor told me that I couldn't apply with these grades. her: I don't understand. you went to a good school. me: I guess my heart just wasn't in it at the time. etc. " Report Response
