I was wondering which school would you choose over the other. I have a hard time to choose between them!

I don't know anything about Buffalo except that it has a much nicer price tag than Tufts. I went to Tufts and am very happy with my education there. I would definately choose Tufts again, BUT it's expensive. If you want to be a GP, go to a state school (Buffalo), if you want to specialize, think about a school with a name (Tufts, UPenn, Columbia). You can still specialize and go to Buffalo though. If $$$ is tight, choose Buffalo, if not, choose Tufts. Buffalo is a small school, Tufts is big. The city of Buffalo is nowhere near as fun as Boston. Tough call, but if the schools are comparable (and I don't know if they are because I don't know about Buffalo), Buffalo is soooooo much cheaper over 4 years both in cost of school and living expenses. Good luck.

Buffalo is a top school and has a much better reputation than Tufts (although I have nothing against Tufts). Buffalo is thought to be one of if not the best clinical school in the US and they have a beautiful clinic. Also, they seem to produce their share of specialists.

Is it me or does this comment potentially describe 80% of the dental schools out there?

OK, like I said, I don't know about Buffalo, don't here much about it. If it has a good rep and is a good school, go there.

everyone says that about every school that they like.... seriously. Everyone has the best clinic ever... just ask those who interviewed at Arizona, or temple, or marquette, or unlv, or UOP...... such good clinical schools.
