What are your general comments?

"Being my first interview, I was the most nervous and most unprepared compared with the following three interviews I participated in. This fact, combined with the negativity of my interviewers made for a below average interview on my part. One of the interviewers (a third year student) actually shook his head negatively after 2 or 3 of my responses. Essentially this was an interview in which they challenged me by asking difficult questions and bringing up any blemishes on my resume. Had I been less nervous I definitely would have done better but the interviewers certainly did not make it easy for me. Also, at the end of the day a faculty member spoke to all of us and at the end of his speech he said "Well, I'll see some of you next year" Most people did not find that very amusing. So...nice looking campus but the interview left me with a bad taste in my mouth. I was not accepted but got into Touro, which was my first choice." Report Response
