OK, this is it. I really want to know the general opinion of which school is preferable. I am at a loss in rating student happiness between the two. Is it true that Tufts faculty has a slight edge over BU's faculty when it comes to ties with Mass General and BU has a slight edge over Tufts when it comes to research and facilities? The feeling in Boston is that these two schools are competing for No. 2 in MA (Of course, to heck with Harvard, and I haven't asked about UMAss). One thing's for sure, I'll be heavy in debt regardless (still waitlisted at my state school).
