What are your general comments?

"I'm currently a second year at MU - I'm posting this to share my experiences and to express my disgust at some of the comments posted on this site about my school. First of all, if this school is your 'back-up' or you feel you are too strong a candidate to actually consider this school, let me just enlighten you: no one with a snobby smarter-than-you attitude will make it at MU. Our strength comes from pointing out one another's weaknesses, teaching one another, and solving problems together. Numbers mean nothing the second you start school here. If reputation, rank, and tooting your own horn mean a lot to you, then you should look elsewhere. If you want to learn to be a compassionate, knowledgable, and adored physician, MU is for you. Even as a second year, I have encountered hundreds of patients, gained invaluable clinical experience, and out-smarted several residents from 'respected' institutions in clinic. So, here's my challenge: be a better physician than me. Your first obstacle: getting your head through the door. The class entering med school at MU this year is already lightyears ahead of you."
