What are your general comments?

"First they fed you breakfast. There was a tour, a talk about the curriculum, and lunch with the students. Then I had a student interview and a faculty member interview, each was about 50 min. The student was great, but the faculty member talked the whole time himself. I enjoyed listening to him, but I wasn't sure if he got a good idea of who I am at all. There was also a 15min interview with the dean of admissions, and it was just an informal chat. I thought that was nice since we don't often get to talk to the dean on a one-on-one basis.
