What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The campus is much nicer that I had been thinking. Probably my favorite campus layout of all the Texas schools. Very spacious with lots of room and no traffic. How much time they spend in PBL--the school's policy is that students will never spend more time in lecture than PBL. Amazing. Sounds good for making good diagnosticians, but I can see how it has hampered their board scores. This year's has improved, but the teaching method doesn't seem to lend itself to aceing standardized tests (USMLE)." Report Response
