Everybody was so nice and then I ran into him which put me off guard." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I was positively impressed by the passing rates for their USMLE boards, the students demeanors, the staff, the faculty--they have one professor on faculty who actually sits on the USMLE question board and writes some of the questions." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was negatively impressed with what seemed to me the lack of integration of technology. Granted I only sat in on one class but it was impressed upon me how fantastic the school was on its integration but in the class I sat in the professor didn't use a PowerPoint slide presentation but used some old overheads. This wouldn't have been a problem except for the fact that he had a thick accent and most of the students were constantly asking him to repeat himself." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a bit unnerving. My advice would be to control as many of the things in your control as possible. I wanted to rent a car and drive myself to the school, however I was persuaded to take public transportation. I ended up lost and the stop I was told to get out on-NO TAXIS came by. So I had to have my mother help me find a taxi (long distance mind you) while I waited with all my luggage in an uncomfortable part of town. Again control the factors you can. Make sure you are comfortable and have as little hassels as possible." Report Response
