The OP's "desire" and even willingness to put his girlfriend through school exposes strange personality deficiencies that likely manifest in poor interviewing.

Odd.

OP here. I do interview poorly and have an admittedly quirky personality. Hopefully I can overcome it to the extent required for this interview.
