What are your general comments?

"The anatomy lab is quite impressive and world-class. They were pinning the cadavers for first-year exams, so our tour guide wasn't allowed in, which was actually kind of nice because the professors preparing the exams talked to us for a while. The library is big, really nice, and set up kind of like a coffee shop. Lecture halls stadium seating, overall the campus was fantastic! Wish that there was more on the island than just a golf course, though. No restaurants, but there is a small cafe on campus. I was apprehensive going in, but coming out I have to say that I would seriously have to consider going to this school if accepted. " Report Response
