What are your general comments?

"Overall, a wonderful school with even greater staff and students. Everyone is friendly and genuinely intent on making this a positive experience for you. The itnerviews really are stress-free, although some students said their interviews involved different ethical scenarios. It is fantastic place to learn, and it offers an incredible variety of choices. You really are encouraged to pursue your individual itnerests and you definitely have the time to do it. Also, problem based learning is a great way of learning medicine, but some students did share their misgivings about it. Good luck!" -Posted 02/14/2005 | Report Response
