What are your general comments?

"I think my interviewer was more nervous than me, perhaps he was new to interviewing. Also, it was obvious that he had not previously looked at my application. Although NJMS boasts a stress free interview, I felt like I was being interrogated as my interviewer shot me question after question. After about 35 minutes he started to warm up to me and smile (or run out of questions) and only then did the interview become more of a relaxed conversation. " Report Response
