What are your general comments?

"My first interviewer was pretty typical. He just asked me about my activities, my research, and volunteering. It was really low-key. With my second interviewer it was like I couldn't say anything wrong. Everything I said he enthusiastically agreed with. With my third interviewer it was like I couldn't say anything right. Everything I said she was very critical of. So basically I got a completely different vibe from each of my interviewers. I had it a little bit weird though because I had 3 faculty interviews and most people get 2 faculty and 1 student. " Report Response
