What impressed you positively?

"It was obvious that the current medical students were friends, not competitors. There was a strong sense of community, and it was clear that each student was supported by their peers. Also - the Office of Student Development was outstanding. I can see how they are a great resource to have available to you, regardless of how well you're performing on your exams." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The financial aid talk consisted of the representative showing us all the numbers, and then giving us a list of physician salaries and telling us that "it's ok, you'll be making tons of money anyway." I found this highly unprofessional. Moreover, I think the way this was done is dangerous - we don't have enough PC doctors as is. By presenting your financial aid info this way, you're telling future docs to choose their specialties based on future salary...." Report Response
