What are your general comments?

"This one felt a lot different than any other medical school interview I've been to. I think that comes with good reason - this place is a lot different than any other medical school. It's interesting that the students largely learn from one another and on an independent basis. The students said that, because it's a new program, there are still kinks being worked out. However, it sounds like everything should be running smoothly by next year. The only lingering questions I have about the place are: how are the students going to fair in residency placement and what paths are students going to choose in their 3-5 years? " Report Response
