What are your general comments?

"This was the first interview that I've been on that I've walked out and did not feel good about. I had two interviewers, one DO and one PhD. The other interview group had three interviewers in which one was a student. I felt like the interview itself was a bit awkward and I got a lot of blank stares after I answered a question - really got no feedback from them. The one DO seemed kinda arrogant and wasn't too friendly either. But other than the actual interview itself, I really do like CCOM and the rest of the day was positive" Report Response
