looks like during my grad school interview i laughted too much ( b/c i was so nervous)
but hte good thing, i wasn't laughing alone, i felt like my interviewer had a good time too as she was laughing as much as i was
is that a good sign? or did i blow it??

at the end it felt like my interview was rather informal and it was more like frends chatting my life, i am so stressed now......

Anything higher than a 3.2 laugh per minute rate will surely result in a ding. Did you exceed that limit? If not, you're fine. If so, you could still be fine...you may rate an additional laugh allowance (not to exceed an extra 0.8 per minute) if the interviewer is laughing along with you.

pardon, but what does 3.2 laugh per minute rate mean?
did i laught at least 3 and 0.2 times per minute?? haha no!

i might have laughted a few times, but concidering that i am a blond i am afraid my interviewer might have thought that i am a bimbo, when in fact i was just nervous and i am a very friendly person to begin with

it seems like we clicked, b/c she felt very comfortable around me and laughted as well

i am just concerned if that might negativly effect me ,,,,,,,,,,,:(

Were the any chortles from either side? Typically involuntary spasms of mirth are evaluated holistically, so we're gonna need your entire profile to confidently make an evaluation.

hi lipstick, my suggestion to you is to just let everything go now (at least for that specific school). You've been selected for interview and you've now finished your interview. Everything's up in the air over at the Admissions office and there's nothing you can do about it. It's like turning your final exam in college...you're done. Nothing you could do at this point would make it any better or worse. Just enjoy your days and wait for the result

My strategy in interviews has been to try and make the interviewer smile as much as possible. It puts them at ease and makes for a relaxed conversation rather than a scripted grilling. If they enjoy the conversation they are likely to leave with a positive impression of you. So far, so good. I wouldn't worry if I were you.
