What impressed you negatively?

"I was there on an exam day and saw someone in the bathroom looking at notes in a corner.

I have heard from other students at GW that cheating is rampant among the medical students. This turns me off the school tremendously. I also heard a conversation about favoritism amongst the faculty in terms of grades. They were talking about some course in particular where a number of people were given an honors grade over people who had higher averages than others. " Report Response
