What are your general comments?

"As this was my first interview, I was really nervous the day before. The dean's talk in the beginning, although a bit long, really put me at ease. My interview was relaxed and informal, mostly because the interviewer was venting about the election and healthcare policy and some containment facility that BU is going to be building. Lunch with the 1st and 2nd years wasn't all that informative, but the tour, led by 4th years, was awesome. It was probably the best part of the day for me, because they answered all of our questions and also took us around to see different areas of the hospital and the anatomy lab. I have nothing to compare BU with, but it seems like a school with solid clinical training and a good reputation." Report Response
