What are your general comments?

"It had ups and downs... I couldn't read my first interviewer at all. She would look at me as if I was saying something wrong when giving my opinion and cut me off sometimes. I don't think she expected a certain answer and it may have just been her personality. It was definately intimidating but I am hoping that I gave a good impression. My 2nd interview was great. We had some similarities and it was quite conversational. Also I learned a lot about the school from my interviewer. UF is a great school and should be considered by anyone in Florida."
