What are your general comments?

"Quite an ordeal. I woke up at 5:30 AM to hop on a bus to get to the NJ transit. i took the transit to NY, and then took a cab to the School. i arrived at the school no earlier than 8:45 AM (my apt date was 8 am). But, this was my 3rd interview and i had called in ahead so i was quite relaxed...probably to relaxed. due to my tardiness, my interview was given to professor hittlemen. now friends...pay attention to that name. he is a psychologist who teaches patient behavior. he is super tough. i had barely gotten 2 hours of sleep the night before because i had just flown in from CA...and due to the 3 hour time difference i was wide awake...that plus waking up at 5:30 am is equvilent of waking up at 2:30 AM for me! so when i got into my interview...i was pretty fatigued. Worse yet, he also did not get a good nights rest and he kept yawning and fluttering his eyes during my interview. during one of his questions...he actually closed his eyes and started snoring. however, this was no deter in his pursuit in understanding me. he grilled me for 1 hour no less. i felt like he was psychoanalyzing every one of my answers, challenging them and forcing me to answer from a different angle. later, i figured/found out that he purposely put me in a stressful situation to see how i would react. i was accepted a day after so i guess i passed. if you get him, just stay true to your answers and all will be good.
