Yea, this is the reason why I think I screwed myself over in a 2nd interview for a really good summer internship. I went in it too nervous and stressed out and over prepared for it. But I guess it was a learning experience. For that company, those internships and jobs were really competitive. There were like 14 people there with me interviewing from different colleges, not only for internships but for jobs too. And that company had about 3-4 other days where they interviewed other groups of people.
I have only done 4 interviews total while in college, two of those were with the company above. I got one part-time internship, so I guess I am 1 for 3.

This one is for sure. When someone has other stuff to say, you do not get much responses. But you get so much advice with this thread relating to jobs, school and other things.
