What are your general comments?

"The first interviewer was great. Talkative, and jovial. The 2nd was a stark contrast. He didn't look like the talkative type, so he just shot tough, straight questions at me without an expression. Seemed very different from the first interviewer. I freaked out and got a 3rd interviewer. He seemed much cooler, but since he didn't know anything about me until the last minute, we mainly talked about other stuff, like authors, Iraq, and the UTMB administration." Report Response
