What are your general comments?

"My first interview EVER began with me coming in and introducing myself and sitting down. This was followed by silence untill I decided to begin the interview by asking a question. He gave a two word answer and then started reading off classes from my transcript and asking me what was interesting in them. Then he asked me about the causes of the civil war. Then he told me to tell him everything I knew about malaria. Every answer I gave was followed by a full 10 seconds of tense silence. I think I did well considering but this school left me with a bad taste in my mouth, and not just because of Lubbock's putrid tap-water." Report Response
