What are your general comments?

"Positive. The med students milling around while we waited for our names to be called for interviews are a nice touch and a great asset. I have never posted to SDN, and the only reason I did was because I noticed a few posts ago someone complained s/he dodged "homless people and agressive beggers" and found that disturbing for someone who is going into medicine. There is a less than seemly side to urban medicine (as there is to humanity) and anyone applying to medical school should be aware of that and not shy away from the realities of life. That being said, Tufts New England Medical Center is in the heart of Boston - an URBAN medical center, which is an ideal location for one to study medicine. And yes, there are panhandlers in the area - but, they are by no means "numerous." " Report Response
