What impressed you negatively?

"All started when i contacted the admissions office to reschedule my interview and the 'coordinator' replied me 3 times in a rude tone telling me to speak up because she can't hear me. (That day i made 3 calls to 3 different schools and only BU had this problem). No wonder the previous post says that admissions staff were ignorant and not helpful to the applicants. Get that ear problem solved before trying to assist others if you don't know sign language. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"BU sux period: To be paying that kind of a tuition i know there are definitely better schools out there for less. And i agree with the previous post. To be applying to a school that only sees others attacks others weaknesses and never commends others on their achievements is not worth anyone's time and energy. Their inmature behaviors only show how pathetic the school is. Interviewer is barbaric, admissions office is inefficient and lacks motivation, and yes the noon "snack" is distasteful. I spent all this money flying from the west and only to get mocked by the interviewer. BU, you'll never change: a school that has the shell that lacks the content. Why not try to build yourself up instead of talking BS about other med schools in the area? You can't can you?" Report Response
