What are your general comments?

"Well let's see, he basically attacked every single little thing i've done for the past 4 years and my life in general. Some of the questions came from the basic list but i felt that he was purposely attacking my character and my work to see how i would react. I felt belittled by my interviewer and i came out thinking "if he doubts the way i've lead my life and done my academics,then why did this school bother to invite me for an interview in the first place?" I felt like he was ambivalent and inconsiderate during my interview. IT sucked. " Report Response
