Should You Accept an on the Spot Offer?

By
Question:
I am scheduled to interview for the final time with a firm that I really like. I think they may make me an offer on the spot. Although this firm is at the top of my list, I still have one more interview, and I'd like to conclude the interview process before making a decision. Am I obligated in any way to accept an offer that is made on the spot during an interview?
