What impressed you negatively?

"One of my interviewers wasn't too enthusiastic about the school. Most of the students were nice and easygoing, but there were a few who were cursing. It's okay, but just not appropriate and unprofessional for interview sessions. Of course, their average indebtedness is 30,000 more than the average $130,000. Expensive, but worth it if it's the only school you get into. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"From what I remember a few years back, Chinatown was cleaner. It looked bad in January. You wear name tags with your undergrad school - leaves other interviewees to judge you if you're Ivy or not. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You go through a series of presentations about the school, which is unlike anything else from other schools. After lunch, the closed doors are open and current students barge in to talk to you about Tufts. While that is happening, you wait for your name to be called by your interviewers or to go on a tour. The facilities are nice and modern - at least the $ goes somewhere. Some students aren't called yet while others are done with interviews. My interviewer was the one who asked a series of tough questions, but don't fret if you get him. Just answer spontaneously and honestly and you won't go wrong. But, my other interviewer was weird. Tufts, please take him out as an interviewer. He refused to read my application and discouraged me from pursuing my career goals. All in all, the presentations were great, especially the Southern woman and the first guy. You just have to get a feel if you will like it. The lecture hall, library and hospital was nice, small, busy and well-kept. " Report Response
