What are your general comments?

"Tufts has to do a better job of standardizing their interviews. Some of my friends had probing, meaningful discussions with their interviewers, whereas mine was about 7 minutes long (preferable though to the interview another girl got, which left her in tears). But I also question their need to bring the dual degree folks to lecture about the programs before we interviewed! Also, I thought the elderly fellow who they trotted out to mutter some incoherent words about the MD-MALD program was about to keel over during his speech; that's all that kept me from falling asleep, the possiblily I might be able to use my EMT skills when he collapses and needs resusciation."
