What was the most difficult question?

"Do you think undocumented immigrants should be allowed access to health care? I didn't really want to be pegged as super controversial, so I said that I would personally find it very difficult to turn away anyone who needed health care. And then he said, "But you didn't answer my question, I asked a simple yes or no question." He was basically trying to box me into a corner, because when I said yes, then he said "But isn't it unfair for them to get the same advantages of citizens?" The entire interview was like that....I was so stressed out when we finished." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everyone said that Drexel was very low stress; I think I just happened to get an interviewer who asked questions for shock value.
