What are your general comments?

"The first interviewer was plenty nice and friendly, no surprises. The second one fired about 25 short-answer questions at me (he was reading from a list), ranging from pretty standard to amusingly bizarre. Among the highlights were "what would be if there were no logic?", "what are the limitations to action?" (huh?), and my personal favorites, two questions in Spanish when I told him I had taken it in high school. He also grilled me about my opinions on abortion and euthanasia. Overall the people were friendly and the presentation was well organized, but the curriculum and clinical opportunities don't seem special enough to justify a potential debt of $240,000. Unless you're dying to be in Boston or near a Chinatown, I can't see why anyone would choose Tufts over any other place. " Report Response
