I vote for Tufts. I believe it has a better overall matching reputation. It is pricey though (about $42K per year) but don't know how that compares to Jefferson. I'm hoping my delayed decision at Tufts turns into an acceptancelmnop said:any opinions? price? quality of education and clinical opportunities? competitive matching? thanks!
Just wondering, how happy are students at Jeff? A girl I know went to check it out and she said that they were all unhappy. But I thot it could just be exams or such but I am having some doubts because when I went to interview it seemed alright, but I only got to meet a few ppl.W222 said:I am a 1st year at Jeff right now and I am originally from the Boston area. I would say that in New England Tufts has a good reputation but I am not sure how they match up throughout the country. Jeff has a good reputation and great clinical teaching. I would say that both schools overall are almost equal, although Jeff has better clinical teaching and maybe Tufts is a little stronger in research areas. Tufts also has a great school of Public Health. It all comes down to where you want to go to school. Also, both schools are equally in tuition. Both are very expensive.
I interviewed at Tufts and BU. It seems like the best clinical training in Boston is at BU because of its location near Roxbury and its history as the city hospital for Boston. My friend who went to BU said she has seen some amazing things that people at Tufts never get exposed to. On the other hand, Tufts is in downtown Boston and is T-accessible which is nicer in terms of social life. Also I know someone who used to work in the financial aid office at TUSM and Tufts definitely suffers from money issues. I don't know about BU but I think they are a larger research institution (more PhDs in more areas than Tufts) and are opening new centers for imaging and infectious disease.skiracer90 said:How about Tufts vs BU?
