Just had my interview yesterday, my interviewer was super nice and although the format was like Q&A but she made it very conversational. Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

I had my interview on Friday and shared a very similar experience. The interviewer stuck to a loose Q&A, but it was mostly conversational and very friendly. Good overall experience that, in my opinion, reflects well on the school.

such a long wait compared to the other schools I applied to in Dec/Jan...sounds like round 3 applicants won't hear anything until the week of the 9th based on last round, right?

Glad it's not just me. Hopefully they'll ask us R1/R2 waitlisters for updates here shortly in preparation for the R3 decision week the same way they did before the R2 decision week.
