What are your general comments?

"Background: at work, I interview candidates for professional positions, so I am very familiar with all aspects of interviewing; both from the side of interviewer and interviewee. The interview with NYU was the worst that I have seen in my whole life!! It was an interview at which I really felt verbally assaulted!! I was told that my advisor “is an idiot” for not telling me to retake the DAT. I was told that I need a “stop light and a police officer” in my life because I said I am too ambitious when I was asked about my weakness. Basically, whatever that I said, it was thrown back at me. My age was asked 3 times (in 5 min) even though it is on the application. The interviewer was clueless about contents of my file and personal statement. " Report Response
