What are your general comments?

"It was pretty laid back. It was really hard to read my interviewer. I'm pretty sure the interview was open file, but he definitely didn't look at my apps. So, I made sure I carefully forced in everything I wanted to say from his general questions. Overall, my interviewer was really cool. The interview itself was very conversational. I really like Temple. Hopefully I get in!!" Report Response
