What was the most difficult question?

"My interviewer had a rapid-fire style, where one question came after the other and there wasn't much time to compose myself in between. However, I stayed calm and was able to answer them well in the time given. Additionally, all of the questions were very specific to my application and my personal history (from my answer to the tell me about yourself question). That being said, there weren't any "difficult" questions exactly, but the style of the interview was more difficult." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"That students are required to attend all lectures (have to slide ID card). Some of the student reps said this isn't exactly true, but that professors notice when students are missing.
