What impressed you positively?

"BU has a lot of international affiliations, you can go away to other countries during your fourth year, you can learn languages while there, e.g Spanish and go to a spanish camp during the summer. I liked the fact that you start to get clinical exposure from the first year. you get a chance to shadow in the speciality you are interested in thus could decide if you really hate it or love it. I also think this prepares you for residency." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the Cost!!! Goodness, I have never seen a more expensive place. I don't even think NYC is this bad. Everything, I mean EVERYTHING is expensive! including food!!! Also I felt pretty good about the interview and love to go there despite the cost but at the end, the dean now says they interview 950 students for 100 places! what happens to the other 850! I hated that, it made me nervous" Report Response
