What are your general comments?

"Almost all the questions were derived from my personal statements...have those memorized and be able to defend/discuss every phrase. Also, my interviewers were obviously hand picked to match my application (I applied to the rural track and my first interviewer was Mark Deutchman, director of the track). They are scheduled to be 30 minute interviews each, but they allow for 1 hour each, so no need to watch the clock. Travel time was long because of a snowstorm, which made many people late."
