What are your general comments?

"a good school; although i definitely felt kind of wierd with all the people being so obsessed where we (the interviewees) went to undergrad. everyone was very nice and the interview itself was extremeely laid back with a very nice faculty member, but the overall feeling of the day was marred by people continually asking me where i went to undergrad. not sure i want to go to a place like that.
