What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"which schoold did you apply to? All other cookie cutter questions, what extracurriculars? Why stony brook? etc. The only problem was that since he asked one question after another, I had little time to respond. I told him, "I played organized sports- got cut off for the next question and never got to tell him I was president of this and that. It only last at most 15 mins though so you can guess how it went" Report Response
