What are your general comments?

"My post is in reply to the negative comments posted earlier on 1/26/06. Perhaps you should have a more accurate picture of Tufts (though these are just me opinions). I am currently in the combined MD/MBA program and thought I'd just give another perspective. I love the school here and the program in general. I have learned so much, have made great friendships, and feel more prepared to practive medicine and do business than ever. There are cons to every program, but I think the the pros far outweigh any of the (far less significant) negative experiences here at Tufts. Come interview at the school and let the people and the school convince you--that will be more than enough to show you it is a great program." Report Response
