What are your general comments?

"Overall it was good. Nelson Strother and Dianne are so nice. I felt completely at ease after talking to them. My first interviewer seemed argumentative. I felt like he didn't like me, but I was in there for about an hour and twenty minutes. I was told by students that it was a good thing to go over the alotted 50 minutes. The second interview went smoother, but the questions were much tougher. Lots of situational questions with ethical issues embedded in them. This seemed to be a tougher interview that most people get in terms of questions asked. The other interviewees got easier questions. I felt pretty confident after the second interview. I kinda like interviews though." Report Response
