"Fantastic place!" | Report Response

"This is not a school you should go to if you don't like working in groups, as they encourage group work from the first day of class." | Report Response

"I wish the administration was more organized and structured in terms of giving out information/schedules/guidance for boards, the clinical years, and applying to residency. Although, everyone does well on the steps (most: 230s-240s) and the match, I feel like it's because we pick up tidbits here and there as opposed to structured info dissemination." | Report Response

"It's a great school with fabulous faculty and great opportunities to interact with patients and physicians." | Report Response
