What impressed you negatively?

"the tour and the students. They seemed rude, and kindof weird. The tour lasted for sooooo long, i wanted to kill myself in the ER. I thought it was really inappropriate to show the dissection rooms as the lab is going on. And i thought that walking through the ER was also unnecessary. If you are a med school bound student who's never seen an ER, maybe med school is not for you. " Report Response
