What are your general comments?

"My faculty interviewer was very interesting and very opinionated about everything. He seems to really love Pittsburgh and enjoy his position. The student interviewer was a little worn out from the exam and kept telling me to relax and not worry that he has a sheet of questions in front of him, which he took most of questions from.
