What are your general comments?

"The interview started out OK, but my interviewer wasn't very friendly (never really smiled or joked at all). He asked questions straight off the page, then got sort of confrontational about several parts of my application (and also blankly stared at me during my responses). He asked me why I indicated myself as disadvantaged (and didn't seem to agree with me). Overall, he just seemed unenthusiastic about me as an applicant and I didn't get the impression that he would represent me well to the admissions committee. I am going to call the admissions office and request another interview." Report Response
