What are your general comments?

"This was by all means that one-in-a-hundred unforgettable hellish interview. My beliefs were attacked at every step of the way, from the college I attended to my political stance. I realized the interviewer wanted to see how I could think and how I could defend myself, but I was really turned off by the interviewer's seemingly arrogrant attitude. After nearly two hours of arguing, I left the room feeling pretty awful and angry, and it was even worse to hear how every other student interview was really laid back and conversational. But don't worry, I got accepted even though I thought I really messed things up." Report Response
