What impressed you negatively?

"Um...cafeteria food? The fact that I could easily get lost since the streets are so small and dark. Everyone always talks about how they work so hard, but it's worth it due to near 100% pass rate for the boards in last few years." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I loved this school. Compared to Einstein and BU, I think this school suited my personality the best. It is in a quiet city in the suburbs and you have the option of going to the big city if desired. The housing is dorm-like, which I love, since I never dormed. 4 people to an apartment style place, each w/ own rooms, 2 people per bathroom (yes, 2 bathrooms total!), ethernet. I also felt like I knew my way around somewhat after only being there for one day." Report Response
