What impressed you positively?

"Everything about this school is amazing. The students are awesome, we had some free time to sit in on M1 and M2 classes and everyone was talking with me asking who I was interviewing with and reassuring me not to be stressed. Gross lab was awesome haha, now I know what a cadaver is! The clinicals are really what was awesome, we walked through Leboneur, the Med, and other facilities which were all across the street from each other. Memphis is truely a medical capital, so getting a medical education here is top notch. The new cirriculum setup to cut back two months of book work and add in an extra rotation also was a bonus!! The amount of hands on work and experience the 3rd and 4th year students had was far above par from other medical schools. No one has a problem being competitive during residency applications."
