What are your general comments?

"The clinician who interviewed me was late, answered two phone calls while I was in his office with him, and then proceeded to seem disinterested and asked me a total of 2 real questions. One of which was "where else have you gotten interviews?" which totally caught me off guard. But then I was accepted almost immediately, so I have no idea what to think now." Report Response
