"I was pleasantly surprised at UB. I really like their new cirriculum (half day of classes, small group work, early clinical exposure all apprealed to me). The dean made an emphasis on remembering that we're people, not just med students, while we're there and seemed understanding about personal issues (marriage etc). The anatomy lab was bright and sunny (has windows - wow!) and there was wireless internet everywhere. Students seemed VERY happy there. (And not just the ones who ate lunch with us) Overall, I could definitely see myself there. " Report Response
