This topic has been addressed time and time again. Tufts is the better choice for a multitude of reasons. Better clinics, more clinical requirements (this may seem like a negative, but when you graduate from Tufts, you can go right into private practice. Every BU student that I have spoken to has said that due to the lack of requirements at their school, they almost have to do a GPR in order to feel competent enough to go into private practice). Tufts has a better dental name both in New England and nationally. I'm sure that I've upset many BU people by saying these things, and they're going to try to pick apart what I just said. They are both good dental schools, Tufts is just better.
