What impressed you negatively?

"Getting around in Boston especially if you are from out of town could be changeling. Make sure if you are driving to Boston to allow yourself enough time. If you have never been to Boston, try to get a feel for the town. I was not particular impressed with the facilities either, which seemed standard at best and same goes for the hospital. The impression I got from talking to the students there was that they would probably gone to a cheaper school if given the choice. The tuition and Boston are pretty expensive. Finally, most of the people that had an interview with me seemed pretty snobbish and uninteresting. However that’s only the first impression. Sounds like I have painted a grim picture of the school, but I must tell that about 25% of the total applicants apply there and that should indicate something. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I came out from my interview with mixed feelings. The school is pretty standard and for the kind of money they are asking for, I would expect it to be little better. My interviewer asked me pretty standard questions, although he was not totally conversatinal. Think really hard about the cost when you make a choice in going to BU. " Report Response
