What are your general comments?

" I had a great interviewer who was experienced in letting you take control of your interview and getting your story across. He's a psychiatrist so it matched my primary area of interest. He wanted to get to know me as a person so I wasnt asked any ethics questions like others. The medical students seemed packed with work but overall everyone seemed satisfied with their choice in selecting BU. I felt like BU really liked students with a broad range of experiences and it was nice seeing different personalities in the room besides rigid pre-med students. " Report Response
