About 750 med students on campus. #4 Expense for out of state applicants $3500+ for all four years #5 How easily Hoosiers are impressed by a mono-rail (reminds me of the Simpsons episode) " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Disappointing school! If you want to be a number, this is your school. Being an out-of-stater(thank god)the school would be very expensive and the surroundings would be depressing (no matter what campus). Certainly my last choice. However, knowing my luck it will be the only school that accepts me. See you soon, I'll be the poor depressed person up in the corner whispering "only four more years" to myself. " Report Response
