What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish they told us that the tour went outside for a bit too, cuz i didn't take my jacket and as a result i froze my butt off when we went outside. I also thought there was gonna be food in the morning for breakfast, but there wasn't, only juice and iced tea and water. So eat something before coming. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview itself was very relaxed and more like a discussion than the interview. I think they've tried to weed out those interviewers who have had a reputation of being really hard on students. Most other people that i've talked to felt the same way. The interview has a tendency to be short unless you ask questions. If you don't ask them any questions, then most interview will last for like 15 minutes since they have so many students to go through. So you have to take the initiative at Tufts interviews a bit.
