    Tufts' reputation used to be stellar and has gone down a bit in the last decade or so. Don't get me wrong, it's still a great school, but not the 'elite' place it once used to be. Why? I'm not sure, but that's what I've heard from the numerous dentists I've worked with. Again, it's a good school w/nice facilities, good clinical training, and significant research going on; plus, it's in Boston. BUT, it is $$, and not worth the extra money compared to almost any state school. Your 'elite' schools these days are places like UCLA, Harvard, UConn, Columbia, UCSF and such.....I'm applying to Tufts 'cause it's still great and I grew up in Boston and would love to return there, but I honestly won't go if i get into a cheaper, solid program.
