What are your general comments?

"very weird interview. lasted 2.5 hours. interviewer was very nice guy and easy to talk to. but he led me back and forth in opposite directions as to the strength of my application, ultimatley said he would write me a strong recommendation but thought I would end up on the wait list and not get in. he also talked a lot about other applicants he had interviewed and the amazing things they had all done. not exactly what I wanted to be hearing. made me wonder why I had been offered an interview and why he had bothered to read every word of my application, which he clearly had. if I could add it all up in terms of positive and negative things he said about me as an applicant, I think the sum would be zero.
