What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"It was a very laid back conversation. Although it was with two faculty members, they were both very friendly. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, school website, the Tufts Handbook they mailed to every student." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school is beautiful. The inside is gorgeous. Instead of a letter stating that you have an interview and a map of the city, there was a very thick and detailed handbook about Tuft's program. There's no BS. All the statistics are laid out in front of you. It is very detailed in the coursework load, financial aid, guide around Boston and anything else you need to know about the school. Five additional floors will be added by December. So by Jan 2010, students will be able to use the facilities. Mark is awesome, answers every question you have." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The outer appearance, which is understandable, because it is undergoing construction. During lunch, when I was about to take a bite of my sandwich, my interviewer came up to me to take me to her office to get interviewed... and I was starving. Also, the school tour guide should have been a student." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How awesome the presentation of the school was. I thought it would be long and boring, but Mark made it so interesting." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewers are random. Most students get interviewed by one 4th year student. I was interviewed by two faculty members. I guess you'll never know who is going to interview you." Report Response
