What are your general comments?

"I interviewed at BU in Fall 2001, at which time they told me I would hear a decision from them in Spring 2002. When a letter failed to come, I called to ask about my application only to be told my file was still "under consideration." The story was the same in the summer of 2002. I have since started medical school elsewhere, but never heard from BU. What did they do with my $95 application fee? Don't they have the courtesy to tell me what they decided about my application for admission? The level of professionalism at this school is seriously lacking. " Report Response
