What are your general comments?

"Best interview day yet! Brown does such a good job showing off their program and making you feel welcome. Because they interview so few standard route students, they know everyone's file by heart. It's now one of my top schools. Breakfast with students in the morning followed by curriculum and finaid briefs. The finaid people seem like they really work with you and the debt load is way below average. Then you go to RI General, which is a wonderful hospital. You do lunch and a tour with a 4th year and a Brown Doc. I thought having the alumnus on the tour was really great. You get alot of information even 4th Year students can't give you. Brown really owns the RI healthcare system and you have so many options for clinical rotations. You can even do rotations away to try out other places for residencies. Alot of students do international programs and independent study. You can even create your own electives. The interviews were very mellow and nothing to stress about. Brown just got a new dean and I think the direction he is taking the school is the right one. Unfortunately, not all of his ideas are fully in place yet, so there may be some growing pains as the school transitions. I suppose that's my real concern. I was worried about alot of the students being PLME, but after meeting a few of them, it seems like the student body is pretty diverse and accomplished. Grading is H/P/F, but there is no class rank. This is definitely a school on the way up and a place that I could really see myself being a part of. If you like the freedom of the Yale System and the New England/Ivy atmosphere, I would suggest you check out Brown." Report Response
