I am looking for a way to set the zoom level in a view to a specific scale, say 1" = 20'. Is there a way to do this in MicroStation? There is a way to accomplish this in other products like ArcGIS, for instance.

As explained by other peopley already, there is no such too available in MicroStation. I agree it cannot be implemented generally as screen resolution vary a lot today, so without some configuration for specific display the results for the same scale can be quite different.
On the other hand for a particular computer using hard-coded values it can be achieved with not very difficult VBA macro.

Yes, and some other products (including Bentley Map) also, but not in MicroStation.
