What are your general comments?

"The interviewer (Ph.D prof) was laid-back with an . . . odd sense of humor. I wasn't sure how to play to it but I kept my sense of humor. He kept asking questions, I'd start to explain, he'd ask a tangentially-related question, I'd answer, then he'd ask a completely new question. I never did get around to finishing up most of my answers." Report Response
