What are your general comments?

"The staff were pleasant and warming when we arrived. And we were shuffled off to a room where a small schpiel about the school is given. Then another about research. Some canidates are interviewed while others go on the tour. The students seem enthusiastic about their third and fourth years and eager to leave. My interviewer hadn't read my file very well as he thought I lived in a rural town and I don't. Then late into the interview he received a page and told me to come up with the answer to a question while he made a call. When I returned everyone had left and the process was over."
