What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview and it was nice. I seemed to connect a bit with the interviewer. I had a lot to talk about with my research, and he grilled me on it for quite some time. After he knew that I had an interview at UCSF, that was when things got a bit interesting. He began talking about his experience in San Francisco and how he graduated there with his Pharm.D/Ph.D. It seemed that there was nothing that I could say to convince him that I would choose USC, and it seemed like he was encouraging me to go there after I was done responding with my intent to go to USC. Overall, my interview experience was much better than I could have imagined." Report Response
