What are your general comments?

"Overall, this was a fairly pleasant experience. It was my 4th interview and it was the same old tour at a different school. The thing that did intrigue me about the place was the potential for great clinical work. The students seemed quite happy to be there and were fairly social, definately not the geeky types I ran into at other schools. The financial aid is decent as well which is important since Boston is ultra-expensive (3rd most expensive city in the US behind NY and SF)." Report Response
