What impressed you positively?

"Everything. I really love Tufts. The day was super long and the interview wasn't until the end, which maybe was meant to alleviate some of the stress, but I felt kind of worn down by the time the interview came around. Regardless, the school is wonderful, they have a lot of nice, new facilities, and they really make an effort to give students hands-on clinical experience from day 1. Also, they delay the start of anatomy, so students can ease into medical school. What impressed me the most was how supportive the environment is, and how they make a point of making everything as low stress as possible since medical school is stressful as it is. If I am accepted I will definitely attend. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?
