What are your general comments?

"There are two interviews- a one-on-one with a student over lunch (closed-file) and a one-on-one with a faculty member (open-file). I had an enjoyable interview day with both interviewers. I was very impressed with how laid back the interviews were. Both of my interviews lasted an hour or more. I stayed at the Germantown B&B and I highly recommend it. The owners are very nice and helpful, the only downside is that part of town seemed a bit sketchy. I walked from the B&B to campus and it was a very enjoyable walk, plus I saved a few $.
