What impressed you positively?

"Colorado is absolutely gorgeous." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"This is a school that doesn't seem to have a sense of its own identity or mission. To its credit, in the coming years it will be altering its curriculum and possibly changing locations/facilities; but for the incoming class, all this means is that we would be the last group to enjoy an outdated program. The student tour guide acknowledged that she was unhappy with her choice to attend, and even the associate dean of admissions had offhanded negative remarks about his own school. For the tour, we were walked through a single classroom, shown the exterior door of the anatomy lab, and given a perfunctory glance at the library. 10 minutes later, it was over. The only good thing students seemed to be able to say was that they could ski alot." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That beyond am incomparable location and competitive tuition (for the in-stater), this school has little to offer." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Having been in love with Colorado for years, I wanted so badly to like this school . . . just couldn't do it. Few of the applicants seemed to really like the school, but instead were there b/c it was their state school, or they were from a neighboring state with no med school of its own. Really dissapointing." Report Response
