What impressed you positively?

"I love the D.C. area. The school is only a 10 minute subway-ride from all the national monuments. Plenty of fun stuff to do in the area. As for the school, I was impressed most by the attitude of the students there: new and old alike. They were up-beat, friendly, yet serious about their schooling. The admin & staff I met were also very upbeat. The medical school consists of several connected buildings with a huge cadaver lab on-campus. And you can't really beat the learning opportunities from case exposure offered by the military." Report Response
