What are your general comments?

"I live in Boston so traveling was not hard for me, but it would be interesting coming from out of town. Boston is not an intuitive city to find your way around in. Harvard is fabulous. The people are intelligent and friendly, the clinical facilities are excellent, and you have almost unlimited resources to learn and research anything you want." -Posted 10/25/2006 | Report Response
