What are your general comments?

"The day began with the Dean telling everyone that many of us would not be accepted (I felt this was inappropriate). The day was unorganized and there were not as many interviewers present as they had expected, so many interviewers had to give more interviews than they would have liked. The two people who interviewed me did not smile once and one of them did not look me in the eye at any point. I felt I had to defend myself from the moment they began my interview. They began it with a question like, " So, you aren't good in chemistry, are you?" This after reading other interview feedbacks saying how relaxed it was, caught me off guard. I would have to say, do not believe everything you read (referring to previous interview experiences)...Pikeville IS a great school, but the interview is a little more stressful than I had anticipated."
