What are your general comments?

"The interview day was more enjoyable than it was nerve-racking. In the morning my half of the group took a tour with a student, who was quite sarcastic but pretty entertaining and truthful nevertheless. The facilities were nice and there's a lot of construction going on for projects that should be completed relatively soon. The second half of the day consisted of the two interviews. I got to the first interview early so it ended up lasting almost an hour, and then the interviewer walked me half of the way to the next interview. The second interviewer was very easy to talk to."
