"The curriculum!! 800 more hours than any other medical school in contingency medicine and ER medicine. This is why I want to be a military DOC!!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I think this place has a strong potential to be REALLY COLD. BRRRRRR. The students were kind of luke warm, though they did come off as enjoying their program and their lifestyle. The pay was pretty good $43,000.00 a year. But most of the students were married so I got put with a married one. We didn't have much in common since I was single, but I still got the picture. Good school, great program, great friends, great benefits." Report Response

"Traffic is a little hectic there." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Excellent interview experience. There was a girl there that flew in from AFRICA to interview there, if that gives you any idea how prestigious this school is. It's definitely not a school for those people who think of it as a last resort. This school is serious about it's mission and if you're not 100% on board with it, they will know and you will FAIL in the end. I'm very impressed and though it was my #1 choice going in, it solidified my resolve once I interviewed there." Report Response
