What are your general comments?

"my interview was with a faculty member who didn't laugh at all or really smile much. it was difficult to get feedback through facial expressions or reactions (because there weren't any) which made me nervous. it wasn't really like a conversation. it felt more like my interviewer picked out random or tangential subjects and then asked me about them. since i wasn't expecting this and the interviewer was pretty serious-looking, i was uncomfortable.
