What are your general comments?

"It is a fantastic place to visit in person, the beauty of the architecture is amazing. The small class size is an awesome advantage in the learning process. The class I sat in had a jeopardy game at the end which was fun. Students really view the pass/fail policy and no AOA as a plus. There is no feeling of competitiveness at the school, everyone is trying to help each other out. You have every opportunity to do research with the top doctors in their fields which bodes well for residency matching." -Posted 10/31/2005 | Report Response
