What are your general comments?

"The woman who interviewed me was pretty thorough, but she did not seem at all excited about the school. When it came time for me to ask questions she knew almost nothing about any of the school programs, and after several times of her telling me that she didn't know any details, I had to downshift into general "what is your opinion about ___" just so it would stop being embarrassing. Also, yes, the student "interview" was just having lunch with a student." Report Response
