What are your general comments?

"All interviewees began the day seated at a long table. Presentation was given on the school and its curriculum. Various faculty members came in to call out applicants and interview them. My interviewer was very warm and friendly. Interview was not stressful, very conversational. We returned to the long table, listened to a presentation on financial aid, ate lunch at same long table with students, received tour of school (not well organized, basically it was like "here's the such and such room, go walk around"), and then had breif closing remarks from the dean of admissions."
