What impressed you positively?

"Well organized, very nice people, friendly, helpful, supportive environment. Anatomy labs combine prosection w/other resources to save dissection time. Curriculum is lecture-based in 1st year, PBL in 2nd year. PBL curriculum is well developed. Diverse and carefully designed clinical exposures in first and second year." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Out-of-state tuition is $45,000/year. Most people cannot get in-state residency after first year, there is very little available in the way of grants and scholarships, and federal loans will not cover that much money so you will have to get private loans. Virtually all 3rd and 4th -year rotations take place outside Lansing, so you will have to move at the end of 2nd year." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"1. High tuition fees 2. more prerequisites (more bio, more English, more humanities) than I realized. Should have done my homework." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Excellent school, very nice people, very helpful and friendly, great curriculum, great clinical opportunities. Unfortunately this all became relatively unimportant once I realized how expensive it was going to be. I wish I had done more research ahead of time so I could have saved myself the trip and saved everyone else's time and effort." Report Response
