What are your general comments?

"The take home message i'd like to give is that AECOM does in fact have a few interviewers that apparently give STRESS interviews, regardless of what students or faculty might say. While reading through some of the other entries for this school, I thought I must have gotten the same person. I got absolutely hammered with questions on abortion, the war in iraq, physician assisted suicide, affirmative action, I thought I was on "The O'Reilly Factor" or something. This lady was completely unfriendly , and when my interview was over, she barely even said goodbye. By some act of God, I was accepted this january. After that interview, I couldnt believe the letter. Overall, I like the school, but it was far and away my hardest interview." Report Response
