What are your general comments?

"Look, my application is not out of this world and there are specific things that I'm missing. This guy made these deficiencies evident (which is mildly considerate), but he did it in a way that was standoffish and dismissive. I felt almost belittled and that I was being put on trial. He even asked about other schools I had applied to and if I had any acceptances. He autonomously switched between interviewer and guidance counselor and I wasn't sure what was going to be discussed with the adcomm and what was going to stay between him and I. I almost feel like this was a tactic to get me to reveal private information (which I did), and I'm not altogether comfortable with that. Basically, this guy was probably a deviation from the mean, but it's worth noting that there's a fair chance that another applicant could have this experience. By all means, he was very honest about my application and the admissions process, I'm just a little suspect of his motives and overall demeanor." Report Response
