What impressed you negatively?

"that it is a "pretty quite town" -- ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO IN GALVESTON!!!! Imagine spending 4 or more years of your life trapped on Galvatrez. The student spend only about hours in lecture a day and the rest of the day is spent teaching YOURSELF how to doctor with PBL. THe curriculum is not structered enough and the student complain that they are SERIOUSLY lacking a pharmacology class to do well on USMLE. IF you are interested in doing well and performing high on the boards to get into good residency, be ready to do ALOT of research and learing on your own. I think that school puts too much responsibility on the student as if we don't have enough things to worry about." Report Response
