What impressed you positively?

"Everyone I asked really enjoyed studying there. Morever, there was a sense of comraderie and solidarity among 1st year med students, rather than any competitive spirit. All support staff and students were extremely kind and went out of their way to answer my questions." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities were old and cramped. Fortunately, there will be a brand new facility next year. Also, the med school is becoming more and more segregated geographically from the rest of campus--it is moving out towards the hospital. That will limit interaction with undergraduates and other grad students. Finally, parking is a nightmare!" Report Response
