What impressed you positively?

"The clinicals, they're strong. The anatomy lab was cool. The school is huge and has tons of history." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The first couple of years seemed to have a weak curriculum. I've visited a number of schools now and I've mostly heard students brag about their first two years. Here, students moaned and complained. For instance, I heard that b/c they only have two exams (a mid-term and final) per semester, some questions don't seem to fit with the current courses they were taking. If you interview here, be sure and ask about these issues and see if you can find a good answer/response before going here." Report Response
