I hear they LOVE this. Shows your commitment - you dragged you @ss to school X, and when it wasn't even interview time! Well done.

I have put this sort of stuff in the part of the essay that asks how school X is going to help you achieve your goals. You know, "I learn best in an intimate cooperative environment. When I visited, I was SO impressed by how nice, non-nasty and generally okey-dokey your students are."

For more ideas in this general area, check out this thread, where Lhotseface had some dandies. (Good dandies, I mean. Not the, "whoa, that's a doozie" kind.)
