What are your general comments?

"I was asked a single question, and in the process of answering it the interview spiralled into a 75 minute conversation about global health. Despite the length, it was a great conversation. The interviewer was enthusiastic about Columbia and was very friendly. The only negative experience was that our tour guide failed to show up and we had to go on an abbreviated tour of the school conducted by a student recruited for the task at the last minute.
