What are your general comments?

"Pitt was my top choice going into this. I really wish I had met more students during the day. I knew two people there from my college, but that wasn't enough. I met with a student interviewer as well as a faculty one. Neither of them see your grades, scores, etc. and the faculty interviewer gets your essay(s). Everyone was really nice, but by the end of the day at my last meeting, I was beat. My faculty interviewer was in charge of the Methods, Logic, and Medicine, and he was really pumped about it.
