What was the most interesting question?

"They didn't really ask questions at all. The student interviewer just glanced at my application before the interview (that's how they do it here) and asked me about my volunteer and work experiences. Then, he asked me if I had any questions. The latter part took up most of the time, so be prepared to ask questions. The faculty interviewer was really nice and didn't ask any questions. We just ended up talking about diversity and ethnic populations in the cities surrounding Boston (I'm from California, but luckily I stayed with family in Boston for a few days prior to my interview). " Report Response

"studentdoctor.net, school web site, talk to students (really recommend getting a student host, they're all very nice and accomodating)." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How much the students really like the school, how much the administration really supports the students, the city of Boston, the location of the medical school, everything!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"How expensive Tufts, and medical school, is. However, their financial aid staff is very nice and willing to ask questions. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The meet & greet that starts at 9:00 AM (not 9:30, as they say in their packet). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was laid back and relaxed. The only bad thing about the process is waiting for your name to be called while talking to other interviewees and students. One noticable thing about Tufts is their emphasis on diversity. Overall, relatively easy interview, but very hard to gauge if you got in or not (and they don't tell you when you are notified, other than "before May 15"). " Report Response
