What are your general comments?

"The interview is supposed to be open file but neither of my 2 interviewers were familiar with my file and had overlooked crucial aspects of my application. They asked me why I received poor grades in classes that I had received A's in. It was just confusing and strange. They were both struggling to read my file and interview at the same time and it just came out messy. Neither knew much about the school. The whole day dragged on with a boring tour of ancient facilities. " Report Response
