What are your general comments?

"It was high stress for me mostly because it was my first interview and I was nervous. She seemed to dwell on my GPA from undergrad (which sucked since I graduated 5 yrs ago). Overall, the questions were fast paced and I got the impression she wanted to make me feel uncomfortable to see how I handled pressure. Also she didn't seem too interested in my research and when I asked her about any opportunities for research she replied there wasn't much because I'd be too busy. This interview definitely did not feel "conversational," more like confrontational." Report Response
