What are your general comments?

"Not unlike some of the comments posted by others, not only is Mare Island a dump, but I get a real BAD feeling about the school and how they're opening a branch campus in Las Vegas! Wake up Touro! Your 1st campus needs work, don't let your greed affect the medical education of the poor saps that already attend this school. Seriously, its worng what they're doing, they should at least wait a year until the LV campus is opened. Nobody, ever, in the history of the world should ever attend this school...unfortunately I spent over $300 attending this waste of time interview. Don't make the same mistake." Report Response
