What impressed you positively?

"The medical quadrangle near the school is AMAZING. Jackson memorial is such a behemoth of a hospital, it's overwhelming. In a 3 block radius, there are is a cancer center, eye institute, peds center, spinal cord injury, the list goes on. VERY nice to have everything so close together. Lots of small places to grab a quick bite to eat. The whole area was bustling with people - seemed similar to a NYC block almost!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Some of the facilities were a little dated. For instance, there were these ugly wires that ran the length of the ceiling in some places. I didn't like the fact that there are no actual slides to look at during histology. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wished I'd read up more on the new curriculum they have there. It really seems like a great direction to go in.

This new curriculum seems to cover everything about a specific organ at once. Students seemed to like it better!" Report Response
