What are your general comments?

"The group interview was formal, but very relaxed. they ask pointed questions so you don't get put against each other - there was never a point where i felt inadequate or under qualified because the questions only pertained to the answerer. (tell me about yourself... doesn't make you too nervous) actually, it was kinda fun getting to hear about your peer's experiences - at other interviews, you never get to hear about where others are in life. i enjoyed it actually, it was totally stress free."
