What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was kind of strange. His name is Dr. Levitt of Physiology. He was very kind but also very soft spoken and non-conversational. He loves details and anything he asks you about he will pry deep underneath it. He didn't just focus on my application though, which was nice, and we ended up talking politics for the last half of the interview. At first I thought that he was taking notes while I was talking but soon realized that he was just doodling on my application. I think the guy might have a mild case of Asperger's syndrome, but that might just be me being quick to diagnose. But he was soft spoken and had trouble making eye contact and very detail oriented so maybe I'm right." Report Response
