What are your general comments?

"My first interview was with a faculty member. The interviews were closed file but the interviewer is allowed to read your personal statement. However, my interviewer did not. A lot of the questions that he asked were answered in my personal statement (which he would read afterward) so it was sort of awkward explaining them since I felt like I should use my interview to flesh out my statement rather than summarize something I wrote 6 months ago. The questions were so easy that I felt more like we were having a conversation in which I was being very egotistical, ofcourse talking about myself. It was nice to not have so many questions because I felt like I was always leading the discussion. He was a very nice man and I think it went well, although he gave me no feedback on how he thought it went at the end. The second interview I had was with a student. I was not so clear on how much weight the student had on the committee. Anyhow, I think it went well except that the student kept asking me if there was anything else I wanted to say (3X) and I kept talking each time since I feel like it is bad to answer a final question negatively. This was not good because at the end he basically cut me off. " Report Response
