What are your general comments?

"The interview was fine. Very friendly, get to knw me through my experiences. The Associate Dean for admissions is very well spoken, sincere, and frank. He loves to talk but just be patient as he is making some very salient points. There is a ton of down time during the day b/c you only have one interview. Do with it what you will. I liked the tour by 4th year students, often times you only see first and second years. I wouldn't put to much empahsis on other "negative" opinions posted on interview feed back. Use your judgmetn with these things and understand that BU may hve simply not been right for them. It doesn't mean your experience is going to be bad. Also I heard of two people recieving the one heart two people question posted in other feed back. And the question regarding selling a daughter in to sexual slavery. So some of what is posted here is really true." Report Response
