What are your general comments?

"As noted in previous feedback postings, the entire day is structured with the morning consisting of lectures given by various members of the admissions staff and committee. The financial aid presentation, I thought, was great only because it gives us all the chance to really consider how to finance our medical education. No other school I've been to addresses financial issues like Tufts and, although it felt daunting seeing those 6-digit figures on the screen, I thought it very informative. Also, there have been previous posts about one particular interviewer who asks difficult, philosophical questions. I had one of my interviews with him and believe me...it's not that bad. He is a VERY nice man who is always encouraging with each answer you give. Mostly, I think he just wants to know how you think and that you have maybe considered some of these questions at some point in your life. Actually, my interview with him was probably the most interesting interview I've had simply because I am not only explaining what is on my AMCAS." Report Response
