What are your general comments?

"The interview was only so-so. I had really wanted to go to Tufts for dental school, but the interviw-day was just not that much fun. The peopled seemed nice enough, but I just got the sense that the particular students we talked to weren't having a good time. Also, the interview itself seemed very mundane and sterile. The interviewer had a list of questions and just went through them. It was different from my other interviews because the Tufts interview was very NON-conversational. There were awkward periods of silence and it just seemed as if my interviewer didn't really like my answers or care about what I was saying. My other interviews at other schools were much more laid back, fun, and conversational. " Report Response
