What are your general comments?

"pretty low stress. conversational. i did not get any crazy difficult questions, although fellow interviewers said they got more challenging health policy type questions. i liked dean witzburg's pep talk in the am. found a student host that was very accommodating and lived very close to school. had my doubts about bu, and flat out addressed them with the med students. impressed at their unflagging devotion. blew my mind when 8 or 9 4th yrs came out to tour us (lots of walking so dress comfortably). internet access available throughout the day.
