"My interviewer pulled out a question from a past step one exam and asked me to tell him the answer. It was multiple choice, but there were 10 choices so I crashed and burned.

"The class is small so I'm sure the students get plenty of attention." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My first interviewer was a second year student 2 years older than myself. It was much harder to talk to him. Also, he was totally stone-faced. I tried to joke with him and couldn't get him to smile once. My second interviewer told me if he was paying for his daughter's college tuition, he would choose her major, regardless of her opinion. (He doesn't think she'll get much money with her current career path.) Fortunately, she had a scholarship. He then informed me that the best thing for her would be if she married a rich man. I guess I didn't hide my disgust well because I didn't get in." Report Response
