What impressed you positively?

"VERY friendly and welcoming students and faculty...the students seemed genuinely happy and loved Creighton. Lots of opportunities for service, medical and non-medical. Good mentoring - older student "buddies" and faculty mentors. Diverse populations/environments during clinical years. True pass/fail." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Seems to be a lack of research opportunities other than the summer between M1 and M2 - one student said it's "very difficult" to do research during the school year. There are some major changes going on in the curriculum and facilities. This will be great for the school in a few years, but I got the impression the transition may be a little rocky for students in the coming years (interviewed for 2014-2015 app cycle)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Highly recommend student hosting! I had a great experience with it. The person I stayed with took me out for drinks with a bunch of other M1s who were unbelievably friendly and welcoming, gave me some great insight into interviewing and med school in general, and really put me at ease for my interview the next day."
