What are your general comments?

"I had a positive experience at BU, and although I have chosen to another school I am glad I went. This is a great school with a lot to offer, especially as far as clinical experience goes. They have a very traditional curriculum, with less problem-based learning then most schools. My tour guides were excellent, by far the best tour I've had thus far. The interviewer did in fact ask me many medical and science based questions in addition to the standard questions, but it was done in a non-stressful sort of way. " Report Response
