What are your general comments?

"Harvard has a nice campus with every available opportunity for students. There is definite arrogance amongst some of the individuals there, especially the students who went to Harvard Undergrad. I can only imagine this getting in the way of good healthcare. Overall, the students were friendly and had no negative impressions of their education or their environment. PBL is an interesting system of learning, although there are still many lectures in the curriculum, so it's not totally a self-guided MD. If you go there, be sure to check out the museum in the library. Some of the names and exhibits in there will blow you away if you're truly interested in the field of medicine." -Posted 12/21/2002 | Report Response
