The preparation and start of my interview was smooth sailing, but my mood shifted from calm to tension during the interview due to the intimidating looks and questions I could not answer, and towards the end of the interview I felt completely melancholy.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
