What are your general comments?

"I had a great time. I was really apprehensive considering some of the feedback on sdn and the fact that I was coming all the way from the east coast. The interview day started off with the dean giving us some history of BU, which was mildly interesting (or as interesting as it can be at 8 in the morning). Then, we had an informational talk with one of the doctors (not very informative, though). My interview came next: the doctor interviewing me was really nice and it was much more like a conversation than a q&a. We had the financial aid talk next, which all sound the same by now. Lunch was next with 3rd and 4th year med students, who were really willing to talk about their experiences at BU and seemed happy. The tour was given by a 2nd year med student, who was great - very enthusiastic about the school and very honest about it as well. " Report Response
