What are your general comments?

"I could see myself living in Boston and attending Tufts the moment I got off the subway. The culture is amazing because of its diversity, the history is rich, the city is beautiful and green (3rd greenest city), and the food is delicious. I came during the coldest time of the year, but it really wasn't that bad! I just wore a pair of long johns underneath and I was good to go exploring the city. Everything was within walking distance and there were a ton of students walking around. City life without the hassle." Report Response
