What are your general comments?

"The info sessions are long but helpful and by the end of the day it's your own fault if you have any questions left about the school. My overall impression of Tufts was positive even though I was caught completely off guard by my second interviewer. My first had been entirely conversational and other students had said the same about their interviews. This interviewer rapidly shot out unexpected questions and cut me off before I was finished answering. It was an extremely long 30 minutes." Report Response
