What are your general comments?

"I actually mis-posted a critique of BU that was actually supposed to be for Tufts! So here's the real scoop on my BU interview: It started bright and early at 8am, but they had plenty of food and caffeine available throughout the day. We had a few speakers come and talk to us about the programs, finaid, etc. Then all the interviewers sat around a conference room table and either waited for our interview or chatted with current students."
