What are your general comments?

"I was VERY impressed with the school and I went into it thinking I wouldn't be. It is super laid back but it seems to be a difficult and challening program. I really liked the online masters programs they offer. It felt a lot like home, but that isn't necessarily a good thing. One thing i was hoping to get out of medical school is a change in pace. I want some non-rural experiences too. Of course, you leave for years 3 and 4 so you can always change then. But I'm still not sure it is my overall fav. " Report Response
