"The student interview was great. I felt we had a rapport withing minutes of meeting. Very laid back and relaxed. Told me up front that I shouldn't be stessed out that he just wanted to learn about me. Faculity interview was a bit stressful. My interviewer vollied question after question, some difficult some standard, one after another with little follow-up to each inital question. I wasn't asked to elaborate on any particular question but I couldn't get a good read on him because he didn't show any emotions really." Report Response
