    I don't like to insult or put down other schools, but I practice in the Boston area and have been for about 3 years now. In my experience Tufts grads come out with a solid foundation of knowledge and skills. If you are unsure, go and visit the schools again and ask around. You really don't want to make some whimsical decision as this will be the next 4 years of your life. If you are going to stay in New Englad I can tell you that Tufts grads are highly regarded. I have never had a patient ask me if I went to harvard or bu. For some reason patients think that is the only dental school around and the best one in the world(I kid you not). Hope that helps.

    I never went to BU for the interview, but if I were you I would definitely pick Tufts. They are both in Boston but I think Tufts is slightly harder to get in. Also, I think Tufts known to have a good dental school :)
