What impressed you negatively?

"the interviewer never really asked me any questions that he formulated on his own (all the questions were just the ones he was supposed to ask)...he didn't seem genuinely interested in who I am or in my answers to the questions. It made me wonder if he had even read my essays or any part of my application. I also didn't like the fact that the interview was at a noisy coffee shop." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"the interview was at a coffee shop...he started with the questions right away. The interview was not like a conversation...the whole time I was answering questions, he was writing down what I said. After he asked me his questions, I had a short list of questions prepared about SGU that I asked him. At the end of the interview, he gave me the essay question to write. The whole interview was over in 30 minutes (a lot shorter than what I was expecting). " Report Response
