What are your general comments?

"Really pleasant. One interviewer was extremely nice, the other one was pretty good too. It was extremely easy-going, I felt comfortable the whole time after feeling sick to my stomach the whole previous day and that morning. The tour went a little long, but I was just so relieved with being done with my interviews that I didn't mind too much. Also, the new campus looks real nice, the old campus is not so impressive."
