What are your general comments?

"My first interviewer was very nice. She asked me some general questions, some specific to my app, and then it was mostly conversational. I felt that it went very well. My second interview was a different story. One of the first things that he told me was that my app said that I was a felon and he was expecting me to come in with handcuffs and an interesting story. "But, he said, "I found out that wasn't really true." I called the admissions office a couple days later and found out it was a glitch in the system, but he never should have said that to me. He sat there with a sheet of paper that had questions on both sides and just fired them off, didn't look at me, and wrote stuff down. (See below for the series of questions.) It was hard to talk to someone when they don't even look at you. I thought that I blew it at the interview, but I got an acceptance letter in the mail a month later. " Report Response
