Interview signals/Post-interview Contact

Hey all.  Just trying to get a sense of what kind of signals people are getting from interviews either during the interview or afterwards.  For example, has anyone told you that, "you would be a great match for our program" or "we would love to have you" or "please consider a second look" or anything along those lines?  Should any of this be taken as a signal that you will rank highly?  What if you don't receive these signals?  Does that indicate that they were not impressed? Thank you!

maybe

If it's a program you're really interested in, you might want to consider going back to do a second look or something.I only got 1 letter like that, figured pretty much everyone did and didn't respond to it or do anything. Ended up matching below where I had that on my list.I know several people who did go back on second looks and ended up matching at those places. I didn't hear from many people who said they got love letters from programs.
