What are your general comments?

"One interviewer asked me questions about issues in which he was interested. So he didn't get to know much about me from the interview. Although, he did most of the talking, we discussed views we had in common. The second interveiwer psychoanalyzed me. He freaked me out at some point but he got to know me thoroughly...hek! I felt I got to know more about me by the end of the interview! The whole experience was very very weird but interesting. " Report Response
