What are your general comments?

"The interview with a med student was very good, as he was very friendly and seemed truly interested in being part of the admissions process. The "faculty" interview was with an alumnus who isn't actually on the faculty. It was nice that he wanted to "give back" to the school, but he also checked his voice mail in the middle of my interview, which amused me because it perfectly fit his self-important mannner, but in retrospect, I found this very rude, especially in light of all the work that applicants have to do just to get an interview."
