What are your general comments?

"I was bummed that the interviewer did not ask me why Ohio State. This is my top choice school, and I really would have liked to have more of a chance to show him that I was very interested in the school. I have a million reasons why I want to go there, and wanted to be able to tell him why, but it never really came up. I think I mentioned some of the reasons here and there, but it was never addressed as a question in itself. Its also interesting that they ask the questions off a sheet of paper. " Report Response
