What are your general comments?

"The majority of the students who interviewed on my day had relaxed, stress-free interviews. My interview was nothing of the sort- he played Devil's Advocate with every answer I gave and certainly didn't try to ''sell'' the school or anything like that. The applicant who also interviewed with him before me had the exact same experience. It seems like most interviews at BU are conversational, but be prepared for the off-chance that you interview with this guy who was quite abrasive." Report Response
