What are your general comments?

"overall the interview itself was not stressful. director of admissions (who is very nice, maybe too nice) was pretty firm about not giving stress interviews for admission. but there was an INCREDIBLE amount of downtime. basically they wanted me to come in at 9am for my interview. the interview ended up coming about an hour late and i finished around 10:30 or so. the tour/lunch did not start until 12:30. so we just sat there in waiting room for basically 2 hours watching this video about the history of brooklyn and how wondeful it is to live there. the tape actually ended and we ended up watching the damned thing twice. i fell asleep waiting. so overall, the interview day seemed extremely disorganized."
