What are your general comments?

"After checking in at 9:30, I mingled with the other interviewees until my faculty interview at 10:00. Afterward, I went back to the admissions building and found that just about everyone had assembled for the tour. The campus is pretty small, so it went quickly. We saw the study rooms, the anatomy lab, some of the lecture halls, and had a brief walkthrough of County (unfortunately we couldn't see more because of HIPAA). Lunch in the faculty lounge followed, and I had about an hour between that and my student interview. I spent that time exploring the library and Norris Cancer Center, as well as talking with some of the students. When my student interview wrapped up I hung around the quad until my ride came."
