What are your general comments?

"It was a good interview day. Everyone was very nice. They give you a card w/ interviewer's address so you can send a thank you card. I don't like to keep track of how long my interviews are, so the time is only an estimation. Rooms are HUGE and nice. I got lost finding my way to my interview and ended up at anatomy lab. The instructor flagged me down and showed me the lab (very nice guy). Then, kept seeing anatomy instructor everywhere (admissions, cafeteria, etc.) and he would always wave and say hello."
