What impressed you positively?

"The sudents that attend BU are so happy to be there, despite the cost. The Assoc. Dean, Dr. Witzburg, is great, although a little rehearsed, and the diverse environment is sure to transform even the most sheltered person into a capapble and adaptive physician. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Ave. student debt: $138,000. The applicants I interviewed with were about as interesting as toast. Come to think of it, toast was more appealing to me than they were at that time. Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins, Columbia, Purdue, and Brown... I guess a top-notch education comes at the expense of personality." Report Response

"That the rest of the applicants were going to be so dull. I wouls have brought some literature to keep myself entertained." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day began with a informative talk on the history of BU wih the Assoc. Dean. After that, I had a single and short 45 min interview with a faculty member. We were then given an informal financial aid and housing talk, followed by lunch with current 1st and 2nd year med students. After lunch, 3rd and 4th year stuents took us on a tour of the campus (not that impressive). We closed the day with yet another speech by the Assoc. Dean and went on our way." Report Response
