What are your general comments?

"If I hadn't known more about the school from previous visits I would have completely withdrawn from consideration after my interview day experience. My interviewer had not been at the school long and didn't bother telling me this until I asked at the 29th minute and I had no chance to follow up on why he/she chose to come to COMP, etc. Thirty minutes proved to be way too short with only one interviewer who was trying to ask questions AND write down notes all the while holding a conversation with you. I'm not confident that the interviewer got to see who I am." Report Response
