What are your general comments?

"The interview kind of sucked. the one guy seemed to be asleep until he decided to ask random questions about anthrax and racism. the student giving the tour seemed too busy trying to impress us with his pager than giving the tour. If you're from IN, you'll almost definitely get in. If you're from another state, I really wouldn't bother unless you're stellar. The improvements look like they'll be awesome when they're done, but I got a feeling of blah when I interviewed (even though I liked the place when I had gone to the library to do research for undergrad). classes."
