    Last decision.
    I almost made up my mind to go to NYU, but Tufts is lately really attractive to me, too. Which would you choose, and why? $ and # of students are not big factors to me. Tufts has bigger name, right?

    Name doesn't really matter in dentistry. Outside of dentistry, NYU is the big dawg.

    it usually comes down to Boston vs. NYC for most. both have comparable students & price tags.

    seriously, 99.99% of the general population doesn't know which schools are better than which. But, of course NYU is so well known just because its...well...in NY. Anywho, I think Tufts is a great school. There's fewer students so I think it's easier to get one-on-one attention. I mean, read all the stuff about NYU on this forum. But then again, I just might be subconsciously bitter for being rejected by NYU. :D

    Yea when you are deciding b/t those 2 schools...it pretty much comes down to the location of the school. Both schools have larger enrollments..although NYU is bigger by like 100 people..which I guess is a lot. But they also have more faculty to bring that ever popular student/teacher ratio down to about average. Just decide whether you like the cosmopolitan feel of NYC..or the more laid back, "college-like" city of boston. Can't go wrong either way. I mean these are good problems to have! Good luck on your decision.
