    I thought you were already locked in on going to BU? Are you on the fence? I didn't go either, but I've decided not to go. You pretty much know what to expect from BU. I just didn't feel like it was a good fit for me. I didn't like the amount of class time. But I do like the town. Everyone says that the clinical years there are great, but my guess is many urban schools have strong clinical programs. I guess I just couldn't find enough reasons to go there and Boston schools are expensive, but not much more than most schools, but living there is crazy expensive and I can't live with roommates. I need my space. So, cost closed the door for me.

    Good luck on deciding what you want.

    Camel friend,

    Did you decide for sure that you're going to BU? I think I read before that you were waitlisted on thinking about another school, was it a Chicago school? I can't remember. Either way, there are plenty of good reasons to go to BU.

    Loma Linda, I never hear too much about that school, being an east coast guy and jewish. They're Adventist or something like that, not even sure what that means. I'm guessing it's conservative Christians. Still, I think it might be cool for some people, especially Christians to be at a school that supports their faith. I'm guessing the location is okay, the weather must be great year round. Those are tempting reasons.

    I went there. We actually had a few 3rd and 4th year students talk about their clinical experience/international electives and research.

    Housing is feasible , with and without a roomate if you start looking early and are willing to commute. They gave a lot of housing information and a booklet about the different areas and relative safety ratings. Most of the students attending were kids form nearby: Rhode Island, Boston and they seem to agreee with the safety ratings.

    Hope this answered your questions.
