What impressed you positively?

"really what didn't? UM is amazing! UM has an amazing location, unmatched clinical opportunities, the most team-work oriented educational environment (in terms of students helping students learn, rather than be cut throat competitive... which, by the way, is hard to find in many campuses). Also they're building a new wellness center that will have a new gym. I was also very impressed by the students that came in to talk to us at lunch- they seemed bright, happy to be learning (not depressed by a boring work load), enthusiastic about the way the classes are held with live classes, plus saved online lectures & podcast (lectures in ipod format) supplement, and the academic societies sound really supportive of a student friendly (NON cut throat) environment " Report Response
