What are your general comments?

"The committee question really threw me through a loop, and I had a bad mark against me as far as behavioral from my sophomore year. They spent between 5 and 10 minutes of a 30 minute interview on that, which kind of shook me as well. Many kids said that their interview was a conversation, mine wasn't. It was very much an interview, but all said and done, they were friendly and helpful. I walked out not sure how I did, but looking back, I am pretty confident. " Report Response
