"the day is long, but very informative...presentations all morning, then lunch, then from 1-5PM, you basically sit in a room with all the other interviewees and the interviewers just call out names. you have no idea when they're going to call your name. could easily catch you offguard. after that, there's an optional tour and that's it. i definitely enjoyed my experience at tufts and would love to go there if accepted. it has definitely become one of my top choices."
