What impressed you negatively?

"The place is kind of shabby. They wouldn't let us see the anatomy lab. Just kept telling us how great it is but that we couldn't go in." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"University of Arizona is launching a new curriculum for the 2006 incoming class. I got the impression that the students didn't know much about it and the faculty weren't really on board for it and that they still didn't have a lot of the crucial plans worked out. They wouldn't tell us anything about the grading system, but later the school put out a flyer about how the new curriculum would have like 5/6ths of the grade based on touchy feely groupwork and peer evaluation garbage. That's a MAJOR red flag. Even at great schools, the first year of a new curriculum is bumpy. At an average school like UofA, it seems like it might be a total nightmare. I mean, I'd still maybe think about going there if they let me in but it fell way way down from being my top choice anymore." Report Response
