The interview went like this :

1. The interviewer introduced his own career trajectory first, during which I asked two questions (that took up 10~15 minutes by themselves)
2. After that the interview began...

I began at 8 AM and we finished at 10 AM.

Is this normal? A good sign, or a bad sign?

I'm kind of surprised you're even asking this. Whenever somebody wants to spend more time with you than previously allotted, FYI it is a good thing :-) the fact that he spent some time discussing his own career path I think is a way of investing in you and I don't really share that kind of stuff with people I don't vibe with. So I think that all the way around this is a very good thing. Either that or this guy is really lonely.

Not just that -- he described how good the school was, and all throughout the interview, he emphasized how good an investment at the school was.
So can I safely assume the school will pick me? Should I ask for a scholarship?

Applicants often forget that this is not a situation where they're judging each applicant individually but it is entirely comparative. So I guess you really can't be sure because you don't know who else apply or what happened with that. Who else he saw.
