What are your general comments?

"I arrived early and well rested, their hotel arrangement and recommendation, Hampton Inn, was excellent. There were only 4 interviewees that day and we arrived at scattered times throughout the morning giving the small class individualized attention feeling right from the start. The tour was great and the students seemed happy and had nothing but praise to sing about their school and classmates. The interviewers were one physician and one MS3, they were both extremely nice and explained how they wanted to portray me to the committee in the best light possible and that they were my advocates.
