"Nothing. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was a little too laid back and relaxed before I walked in the door. It just really went from super informal to really formal. I wasn't prepared for that change. I definitely think I ended the interview better than I began it. Which I suppose is better than ending it poorly! I walked out feeling really good about it but on the drive home I began breaking it down and started probably overanalyzing the things I said. I am glad that this was my first interview because I think I had a little more room for error than at other schools. " Report Response
