What are your general comments?

"I really disliked this interview. I've had a couple interviews already and have been accepted and was really looking forward to this one in the hopes that it would be like the others. It wasn't in that the interviewers sucked--they were so unfriendly and nonresponsive. It was like I was talking to some rocks outside because they didn't react very much at all and kept flipping through my file while I was answering questions. The interview process itself was pretty standard with the info session, interview, and tour. I found this place to be very average and nothing stood out to me as unique or exciting.
