What are your general comments?

"I thought I bombed the interview. I was really nervous. I couldn't articulate my thoughts into words, and felt like I was rambling. I had to ask for clarification for about 2 questions because I wasn't sure what they were asking for. My interview ended early and I was the first person out. My interviewers only took notes for the first ten minutes so I thought they just gave up on me. I was so depressed after the interview that I skipped the tour and just went straight home. I thought my chances were gone. But after a month later, I was accepted. ^_^ (So don't overanalyze your interview experience!!! You just keep degrading yourself.)" Report Response
