What impressed you positively?

"Everything. Seems like a no-nonsense school with the strongest M3-M4 clinical experience of any school I know of or applied to. The students were incredibly friendly, not just the young ones but also the older ones. The M1's we met had a joint-exam coming up and were still coming to hang out and talk to the peons :)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?
