What are your general comments?

"Overall, my interview experience at BU was very good. The introduction talk in the morning had a bit too much history for my taste (and I like history), but besides that it was very informative. The interview is either at 9:15, 10:15 or 11:15, and during this whole time presentations are being given about financial aid, school characteristics, etc. and people filter in and out of the room. You have to find your interview room so make sure to leave with plenty of time. My interviewer was very nice and I really got the feeling that he was trying to get to know me as a person. During lunch you have the opportunity to speak with medical students and after lunch a student led tour is given. After the tour there is a wrap-up. The dean of admissions was very nice and really seemed to care about the students that interviewed there. I had a great day." Report Response
