What are your general comments?

"Based on other comments on this site, I was a bit leery about my interview at TUCOM-LV. However, I have to say I came away very impressed. My biggest misgiving about the school is that it is so new. The very first graduating class is only in their second year right now, which means no one has taken boards yet. This makes it hard to gauge whether the school is doing a good job with their academic program. HOWEVER, I will say that the fact that the school is so new means there are HUGE opportunities there to help build the school and make it into something for the future. Clubs, outreach programs etc, that you might find already established at other schools are just waiting for students to come along and put them together...which seems like a very unique experience to be able to have. Plus, as the only medical school in LV, all the hospitals in the area are taking /planning to take the students for third and fourth year rotations. I'd say to ignore the complaints about the warehouse-like building...even though it looks funky from the outside, the inside is huge and they have all the facilities you'd expect from a medical school...including two lecture halls, anatomy and histology labs, basketball court, and a big gym.
