What are your general comments?

"My student interviewer held a completely blank stare the entire 30 minutes. It was kind of unsettling, and I had no idea how I was doing. The other two interviewers, however, were both very friendly. It seems like UIC gives each interviewer a packet of questions to choose from, because my interviewers would look down at a sheet of paper each time before asking me a new question, and I also got asked the same questions by multiple interviewers. They asked a bunch of ethical questions, combined with some personal ones." Report Response
