What are your general comments?

"Open-file faculty interview.. he did not greet me or shake my hand when I walked in. The interviewer would ask me a question and have me talk ultra slow so he could write down what I was saying, word for word. I felt like he was following an interrogation protocol and it made me feel nervous. Halfway through the interview, he looked up from his notepad and tried to make me feel less nervous by smiling at me.. which helped a lot. Towards the end, I really liked my interviewer because I could tell he was probably a very thorough doctor and cared a lot about the school and the students.. just really intimidating. Asked some specific questions I couldn't answer and didn't get to cover or talk about what I really wanted to talk about." Report Response
