    Tufts vs UMass(OOS)

    Blessed to have been accepted to both of these schools and loved both when I interviewed. Most of the threads I've seen choose UMass due to cost (understandably) but I was accepted to UMass as an out-of-state applicant (RI resident) so the price difference is now negligible. I would greatly...

    I've gotten accepted to Umass Lowell for MPH, as well as the University of Nottingham and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine for MPH. Both schools are in the UK.

BU has given me a merit based scholarship but UMass is still significantly cheaper. I know BU is ranked in top...

    Hi all, I'm trying to decide between Rochester, Umass, and GW. Interest in IM and Psychiatry. Leaning away from GW because they give grades during Preclinical.

    Boston College vs Northeastern vs UMASS Boston

    Hello all, I have been accepted and am strongly considering Boston College and Northeastern University. At this point Northeastern is ludicrously expensive compared to BC and I would have to talk to financial aid to have them even begin to accommodate me. UMASS Boston Honors College offers a...
