What are your general comments?

"BU is a great school! Their match list is really excellent, as are the clinical facilities. (BMC gets 1/3 of the city ambulance traffic even though there are 10 teaching hospitals in Boston!) The dean is really nice, as are the students who eat with you and take you on the tour. the downside is that BU only accepts like 1/3 of their interviewees, so the process is still really selective even after interview. All in all, a place I would really like to be." Report Response
