What are your general comments?

"Out of the 5 schools I interviewed at,this experience was the best. The interviews were fluid and conversational. I felt they were honestly trying to get to know me.If you are out of state, your chances are limited, but you should know that going in if you have done any research at all. I fail to understand some of the negative feedback on this site. If you are willing to spend the time and money, don't be all angry and uptight about your chances, it will only hold you back.
