Interviewer asked where else I applied, where else I got in, where I have visited, what "Georgetown would need to do to get me to go there."
EXTREMELY uncomfortable. I offered up limited information, because it didn't really feel fair or like information I really wanted to give to the school necessarily, so I probably seemed short or maybe even uninterested.
We wasted a lot of time on questions like this instead of questions about me as an applicant or instead of giving me the opportunity to ask the interviewer questions about the school.
Don't write on TLS a lot but thought it was fair to warn people that maybe this could be something that happens to others during an interview.
I will not be surprised if I get dinged in the next few days.. even though my numbers put me at good chances.
I had a pretty unsatisfying alumni interview too. I had a hell of a time scheduling it in the first place and then the day of I'm all set up for a skype interview, notes in front of me, etc etc and I'm 95% sure my interviewer was laying in bed when he just called my cell and just chit chatted. He apparently didn't have any of my application materials and didn't have any questions prepared. It was definitely a weird experience.
