What impressed you positively?

"The enthusiasm of everyone at the school. Everyone talks about how friendly students are at a lot of medical schools, but I would say that it is at least a notch higher at USUHS. Maybe it's because everyone there is "in the family." I saw very clearly how supportive the military is of family and that impressed me a great deal. The whole day was very organized. The new curriculum also showed thoughtful planning. I did not know beforehand that preclinical instruction was compressed into 1.5 years." Report Response

No Response

What are your general comments?

"USUHS may have started as the backup option, but after interviewing there it has quickly become my top pick. Everyone at USUHS is friendly and supportive. There were no tricks to lure you into the military or anything; rather they are very transparent and want to know that you know exactly what you are getting into. Pretty much all of the students that talked to us during lunch and led us on our tour had no prior military background." Report Response
