What impressed you positively?

"The students seemed very happy. When I was waiting for my interview, at least three or four students stopped to speak with me. They were very enthusiastic about the school and about their classmates. The admissions staff encouraged us to attend lectures (I highly recommend this), and I was able to sit in on a PBL session. Many students asked questions during class, and the faculty were very responsive. I like the way that the curriculum is organized. There's a gym in the hospital that's open 24-7. " Report Response
