I'm running get --fast --cache=1024 on my laptop as we speak, and I'd like to know some stats about how many peers I'm connected to at any given time. I've been checking the size of my chaindata directory for a rough estimate of my progress, but is there any way to get this information from the geth process itself?

You can use console in second terminal.

geth attach

and then in the console:

> eth.syncing
  currentBlock: 27832,
  highestBlock: 3520007,
  startingBlock: 26025
> net.peerCount
