What impressed you positively?

"The simulation clinic and the building it is in are beautiful, very modern and well equipped. The admissions people did a very good job promoting BU's positives and seem to genuinely care about their students. There were also a number of very friendly faculty who said hello to us while we were on tour. If I go to BU, it will be because of their efforts and the great pre-clinic facilities." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Our tour guide left something to be desired. The building the clinics are in is a dim, hideously ugly cinderblock, low-ceilinged, 50's architectural nightmare (but the clinic chairs themselves are modern and well equipped and well lit). The financial aid lady almost scared us straight out even considering going to BU. The area that the school is in a rougher part of town and is pretty far from the most convenient public transport (the T), but they have free taxi vouchers if you have to stay late to study."
