What are your general comments?

"I was really impressed with the program here. The opportunities for clinical experience were good and the students really seemed happy here. The cost of living is very low, and the students who gave the tour were very candid about their experiences here. A lot of people in my interview group were asked ethical questions, but I actually wasn't asked any. I was, however, asked a lot of cultural questions mostly centered around what kind of responsiblity the medical community has in addressing cultural issues in medicine. The school seems very patient oriented and I could easily see myself going here." Report Response
