What are your general comments?

"I really love Tufts and am very excited about their new Maine Track Program. The students and faculty are warm and welcoming, the facilities are amazing and they place a lot of emphasis on clinical medicine from beginning. They also seem to work very hard to personalize each student's medical education through "selectives" from the first year so that you start getting a feel for different areas of the profession early. I felt that my Maine interviews went somewhat better than my Tufts ones but perhaps I was just less stressed." Report Response
