"There was one second year that would not stop talking during the lunch. She talked over the people interviewing and made the lunch hour a little unpleasant. Also, you spend the entire morning listening to presentations, which is pretty annoying for anyone that wants to get their interview over with, see the school or get to know the other people that are interviewing."

What are your general comments?

"One of my interviewers was very nice. However the other was very stand-offish and completely shut down when I started talking about health disparities. He rolled his eyes at me and made other rude gestures. This made me very uncomfortable. When I spoke to the admissions staff at Tufts, they told me that they have had similar problems with this interviewer in the past, but were not going to do anything because he had been interviewing with them for so long. They also made the remark several times that "life isn't fair". I have lived in the area for several years. I care about this school and I was very disappointed by how poorly I was treated during my interview and how little the school cared. I want to stay in the Boston area, but my experiences really made me question how much the school values their students." Report Response
