    Yes. I think the conversation went well, but honestly as an applicant, I can never tell. They asked some general questions such as why UArk and why PhD. Nothing technical.

    As as said, things your research about schools/faculty and your statement of purpose should help you with. Questions like "Why UArk?" or "Why a PhD?" may seem innocuous for someone who did a good job before the application and have a good idea what they are getting into (and that seems to be your case). But that's not the case for many people who seem to be interested in a PhD, and then they can have a hard time answering questions like that.

    I know that kind of thing is covered in the statement of purpose, but the statement is very limited and I think that's good they checked again in an interview and gave you the chance to express your reasons directly. As StrategicMGMT wrote, you had ticked the boxes on paper, now they had to check with the interview.

    Not being able to tell is actually good too. Because usually we can't tell when it went well, but we can tell when it went bad.

    Did they tell you if there will be another interview, or what should you expect next?

    What you said here is true. Preparations that I have done when I wrote my statement of purpose really helped a lot!
    And yes, they said there will another campus visit in January and I shall hear from them in this week.
