What are your general comments?

"my interview at BU was by far the best and most friendly interview i've had to date. he was totally friendly, really interested in my background and what I had to say, and we had a terrific conversation. he asked me about stuff that pertained to my application, but we also just shot the shit about people and music and life in general. towards the end he began to actually congratulate me on all of my accomplishments, telling me that he was confident that I was gonna become a great doctor. the introduction to the day (given by the dean of admisssions) was fantastic. funny, informative, and inspirational. left a really good taste.
