What are your general comments?

"very positive. the LIRR trains don't match up too well w/later interview times...but, if you show up early, you can go see a lecture. afterwards came the tours,interviewed with an anatomy professor, who was SUPER nice. the tour guides seemed ok, if a bit cold at first. during the process, it came out that one of them is on the admissions committee. after that, candidates were clawing to get her attention. jeez. the interview went well; the anatopmy professor was extremely friendly, and the interview was relaxed and conversational, in no way confrontational.
