What are your general comments?

"the day went smoothly,lots of downtime, but we werent confined to one room during the day which was nice. students and faculty came in throughout the day to answer questions. the admissions lady was very nice and assured us that the interview would not be stressful and that they wanted to get to know us as a person. In my case, I didnt find this to be true. I had an overall good experience except for the actual interview itself. It put a damper on the whole day and definitely changed my impression of the school.
