What are your general comments?

"The faculty member who interviewed me was extraordinarily friendly. VCU’s interview was my 10th and by far my most pleasant. We chatted about my hobbies, family, education, and interests. He asked many “difficult” subjective questions regarding politics and medical ethics. Normally this would have been frustrating. However, our conversation was more of a philosophical discussion than a battle of wits. Overall a super-cool interviewer, friendly students, and nice facilities made for a good experience.
