What are your general comments?

"The interview day started early with a presentation from the dean of admissions, which was actually pretty intersting and informative. I can't remember if my interview was before or after the tour/lunch... I think it was before. The interview wasn't very stressful, and my interviewer did a good job of making me feel comfortable - he seemed like a very nice guy. The day ended with another brief talk by the dean about how we should choose what school is best for us. BU has great facilities and the people are great. I really really like this school!"
