What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is no breakfast. It consists of granola bars and bottled water. There is ALOT of down time. It cannot be filled by the ''self-guided'' tour that is suggested in a booklet provided to you. Walking through the hospitals aimless makes you feel like you're in the way." -Posted 01/24/2007 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview experience was positive. I had no interviews in the morning so after a failed self-guided hospital tour experience, I took myself to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. It's only a few blocks away. While it is no Met, it has some good holdings in its collection. (Go for the European paintings and early American art. Its modern American collection is shoddy, save for a few Georgia O'Keefes.)" -Posted 01/24/2007 | Report Response
