What are your general comments?

"The interview felt very rushed, probably because I was the last one of the day. Every time we started to get into a conversation outside of the questions, one of the interviewers would cut it off. The questions themselves weren't hard, except that I didn't know exact numbers for high school information (class rank, class size, SAT score). Why high school stuff matters anyway, I have no idea. All of the questions are exactly the same as those listed on SDN (they've been the same questions for like three years)." Report Response
