What are your general comments?

"The first part of the day I met with a doctor in the hospital. He asked me fairly difficult questions and probed harder than most interviewers. Probably depends on the interviewer more than the school. He was incredibly friendly and obviously felt very strongly about the quality of the school. In the afternoon I met with a student interviewer, which was really nice because it was much more relaxed and I had a student all to myself to figure out what life was like as a Chicago med student.
