What impressed you positively?

What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was very laid back - he just wanted to clarify my activities and academics. He was honest about the process though and how difficult it is to gain admissions, but he said that all of his interviewees get into some medical school. The school's facilities were fine, not great, not bad either. The dean of admissions kept on stressing that if you had a bad interview, you should let him know and he'll set you up for another one. I'm not sure if he read the previous person's comments on their interview or what...But it seemed like everyone there had a good, laid back interview and I think bad interviews are uncommon. The day is long and everyone has to wait until all the interviews are over before going to lunch and the tour so there's alot of drag time. there's plenty of food though throughout the day. Overall, BU was better than I expected. " Report Response
