What impressed you negatively?

"Because the students live all over Boston, they didn't seem as integrated as the students at other schools I looked at. The library seemed a bit old and not that good and the student tourguide said a lot of times she has to go to Harvard to find materials." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very laid back. BU really seemed like a quality institution without the pompous attitude of some the other med schools. My interview was with a Ph.D. who was so enthusiastic about his research, my research, and, of course, the school. On the tour we got to see the anatomy lab: my first time seeing a cadaver! The faculty seems really tight-knit. And Boston is a great city to study and live in!" Report Response
