What impressed you positively?

"I liked the school way more than I thought I was going to. The dean of admissions is really enthusiastic. He was also extremely open and honest about the way the admissions committee makes its decisions, and about what to expect. The admissions staff who spoke to us were all extremely friendly and forthright. I really enjoyed the student tour as well--the fourth years seemed very happy with their time at BU. When we visited the hospital, there was a genuine camraderie not only between students, but between students and doctors as well. " Report Response
