What are your general comments?

"I don't know. This school didn't really impress me. It is my last choice of the schools I have been to so far. The standardized patient program is emphasized alot but other schools have it as well. I also didn't learn anything about the curriculum. The students were cool and talked to me during the down time during the day but still the students have been great everyhwere I've gone. Don't get me wrong I would be happy there I just would probably be happier elsewhere. It just didn't feel right there. On the other hand I did see attractive girls at the school which is always a plus. I don't know how to describe my feelings about the school, it just didn't feel like a place I would jump at having the chance to attend. I also saw residents interviewing which was pretty funny. They looked exactly the same as all of us." Report Response
