What are your general comments?

"I came away from the interview being positively impressed with the school, even though I thought I knew most of the things I could know about it. However, unlike what I have read from other SDNers, the interview did NOT feel like a conversation. It felt like an interview. I felt very neutral about the interview, thinking it had gone neither great nor poorly. But I got my acceptance letter a week and a half later. So, impressions aren't everything I guess."
