What are your general comments?

"This is a great school that I'd love to attend, but I was turned off by the huge, throbbing boner they have for their match list. I found this odd when juxtaposed with the cura personalis philosophy and Jesuit tradition of service to the poor and underserved. The COA (~80,000/yr) is absurd and probably pushes a lot of potential generalists into higher paying specialties, but they don't seem particularly interested in changing their specialty percentages. Compared with other schools I've visited, the students and overall atmosphere seemed fairly immature and frathouse-y. But that doesn't mean much since interview days only expose applicants to a tiny subset of the student body and the older students are probably less likely to be hanging out on campus. Unlike a lot of schools, they provide a lot of real, detailed information and plenty of opportunities to ask tough questions of people who actually know the answers. I liked that and definitely sensed the "cura personalis" philosophy more than I expected." Report Response
