What are your general comments?

"low-stress, friendly, conversational - as a reapplicant, rest assured that NOT all interview visits are like this! i enjoyed the closed-file format; if you have a skilled, experienced interviewer, the interview runs more smoothly and naturally. but it can be awkward with a less skilled interviewer who may be unsure what to ask about you. make sure you convince your interviewers that you are a "good fit" for Rochester - they are big on the biopsychosocial theory of medicine!"
