What impressed you positively?

"Their requirement of having all students have PDAs, their integrated curriculum. The classes usually just go from 8-12, with a few exception for review sessions and time at the hospital, and even from 8-12 they always make sure that you don't have 4 straight hours of lecture, placing a lab or a case study discussion in the middle." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the school exceeded my expectations. They remade their curriculum several years ago, so now they have patient contact starting in the first year. They're requiring all entering students to have PDAs, which I think is a sign that they're trying to keep up with advances in technology. The tour was done by an admissions advisor. He conducted the tour and the rest of the day very well, trying to have a small one-one conversation with almost every student. The interviews themselves were very conversational, although some people got asked questions like "How many McDonald's are there in the US?". They give an essay at lunch. The topic was "What are your plans if you're not accepted anywhere?"" Report Response
