What are your general comments?

"I'm not crazy about the school. After attending boarding school and college out of state, I am really not interested in living in a dorm setting. My interview had a disinterested expression on his face and it was obvious he had other places he'd rather be. I'm just grateful I live in NYC and didn't pay money, other than a swipe of my metrocard to go to this waste of a day. Aside from my rantings, this was a very straightforward and short interview." -Posted 03/07/2005 | Report Response
