What are your general comments?

"My first interviewer really got down to business and grilled me thoroughly. He quickly found my weakness (lack of "experience with living people") and made me stumble around that. My second interviewer never got any pertinent information; he just wanted to talk about my research (he was a Ph.D.). The first interviewer had read my file; the second had not. Overall the day made me really excited about Penn State." Report Response
