What are your general comments?

"I had on interview at UOP before visiting Tufts, and I think that Tufts simulation lab seems a bit cramped. I didn't get to see all of the school, but I think because we also stepped into the medical center we didn't have enough time. I found the faculty and students to be nice. Although I didn't feel much of a connection to the school. Overall I think that Tufts is a decent school and they do put much effort into helping their students do well. " Report Response
