What impressed you positively?

"As others have said here, the facilities are beautiful. But I was impressed by how practical and cheerful and facilities were: plenty of light, sensible spaces for groups of students to work together on the PBL curriculum. Boston is very doable of foot and the T, and there is no shortage of international food. Also, there are a million small neighborhoods with unique characters that make living in Boston seem less urban." -Posted 01/25/2005 | Report Response

"Day began at 8 with coffee and pastries. Dean-type talked about the curriculum and motivations of the students. Also, student talked about PBL. All had an interview in the morning at one of the affiliate hospitals, then lunch and tour at 12.
