What are your general comments?

"The day starts with a very short orientation, followed by lunch with a faculty member (ours was this very sweet old man, he was great), then a tour. In the afternoon, you sit with all the other interviewees and fourth-years who are on the committee. Interviewers pop in and take students, the faculty interview is open file. After the faculty interview one of the fourth-years will interview you, that one is closed-file. The interview was made more stressful because after the tour and meeting students, I really wanted to go to Hopkins, so I was more concerned than normal about making a good impression."
