What are your general comments?

"Friendly yet not completely informal, I was very impressed with my interviewer and his knowledge of, well, everything. He obviously took interest in the admissions process and had read my file well. We talked about new york, research, and a lot of things that had very little to do with medicine (private vs public schooling, classics, us dependence on oil). 45 minutes flew by even though we were only scheduled for 30."
