What are your general comments?

"The interview itself was a little stressful- there was a clinician who was very nice, another woman who was very nice, and the third woman HATED me. Or so I felt. I dealt well with the other two people's questions, they smiled and seemed satisfied with my answers. The third woman asked me to clarify and asked me things with a scowl on her face. I smiled and tried to be polite, but man did she not seem to like me. She must have been the one on the board because I got waitlisted :(" Report Response
