    hi guys,

    i'm interviewing at bu tomorrow. besides the fact that i LOVE boston, i haven't been able to find much on their website, etc, to make a case for why i would want to go there. any of you who are applying or have interviewed have any thoughts on what sets bu apart from other schools?

    thanks!

    From the MSAR: ....Integrated Problems, a course using problem-based learning, was added and the courses in introduction to clinical medicine reinforced......In addition to the conventional clerkships in medicine, surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics and psychiatry, a clerkship in out-patient primary care is required in either the third or fourth year. The new curriculum includes four mandatory clerkships for the fourth year: neurology, radiology, ambulatory primary care, and home medicine.......A dynamic generalist curriculum in the primary care disciplines of internal medicine, family practice, and pediatrics is presented throughout the four years. Faculty in nearby urban and suburban practices serve as mentors and teachers. Primary care medicine is taught in these physician's (sic) office practices, in community health centers, patients' homes, day care centers, and shelters. Experience in rural practice (in the U.S. and abroad) is available as electives in the fourth year......Students may also pursue a pathway of study leading to the .......MD/MPH.

    Everyone should have a copy of the MSAR. Last year I tore out the pages for each school where I was interviewing and took them with me to review while traveling or the night before the interview (along with copies of my primary and secondary apps).

    Another interesting tidbit about BU. It was founded in 1948 as The New England Female Medical College, the first medschool for women!

    i could be mistaken but im alsmot sure it was BU that had on their secondary app a question asking why you wanted to go there but they said it was perfectly acceptable to say no reason cause they realized that students apply to lots of places to give themselves a good shot at getting in..i LOVED that question! .. might have been Tufts thought

    BU does not have a secondary app -- they just ask for money.
