What do you like least?

"MCW offers poor clinic training and unorganized preclinical courses. They are mostly concerned with testing, not teaching. So most of your learning will have to be independent." | Report Response

"I would not regard this as a "student friendly" administration. I have either experienced personally or are aware of the most authoritarian, irrationally strict enforcement of various institutional rules that have been incredibly frustrating over the years." | Report Response

"The price" | Report Response

"The registrar" | Report Response

"Poor name recognition, like the above poster said. The curriculum is undergoing change, which eventually will be a good thing." | Report Response

"Honestly, the lack of name recognition. People outside of milwaukee think you are going to like ITT tech or something, they have no idea. I wish they would reconnect with Marquette to change the name back to Marquette SOM" | Report Response

"High tuition. Clinical summer externship opportunities are limited. The new Dean's vision for the curriculum seems scattered." | Report Response

"(sorry - nothing)" | Report Response
