"I applied to the University of South Carolina and the Medical University of South Carolina the year before. I was not accepted to either school. However, I, like every other rejected applicant was able to speak with the Chairman of the admissions committee at MUSC. He advised me how to improve my application. The admissions personal including the students and faculty at USC were rude and aloof. The campus is small, old, and dirty. I decided to apply for early decision at MUSC. I was accepted. It is a great place! " Report Response
