What impressed you negatively?

"my first interviewer was really tough! he seemed to have decided before i got there that he thought i was not qualified to be there and would not be an asset to the program. i felt like i had to spend the whole interview changing his mind about me. also, he was late, and when i went to go check on him, he showed up, which makes me think that he thought i was the one who was late. really stressful experience. I had to run to my second interview." Report Response
